Yatsenyuk said: “Now on the territory of Crimea there is a circus spectacle directed by Russia. This spectacle is so-called referendum which is held at the gunpoint of the 21,000 Russian soldiers. Because of this invasion, Russia has ended up in international isolation. The entire world condems Russia for its military aggression against Ukraine. We have asked the OSCE to send the international observers to Ukraine. I hope that at the special meeting of the OSCE this decision will be made. Ukraine will find all the instigators of separatism which are trying to destroy Ukraine’s independence and are working under the Moscow’s cover up. They will be judged in Ukrainian and international courts. There will be no place where they will feel free, and Russia will not protect them.”

Ukrainian and Western officials have blamed provocateurs who are sent in to create disorder, giving Russia a pretext to send in their military forces to restore public peace.

Yatsenyuk asked about the same people who have been seen at pro-Russian protests in Kharkiv and Donetsk. A minister told him that these are the same people who have also been seen in protests in Odesa and Mykolayiv, as well as in 2009 during pro-Russian protests in the Baltic nations.
