Nothing is threatening Crimea - Peskov

MOSCOW. March 9 (Interfax) - There is currently no threat to the security of Crimea, Russian presidential press secretary Dmitry Peskov said.

"I am not aware that something is now threatening the security and stability of Crimea and Sevastopol," Peskov told reporters on Wednesday when asked whether the vacation season will open in Crimea this year and whether there are any reasons not to plan vacations in this region.

"You know that it [Crimea] is surrounded not by friends, but, on the other hand, our Armed Forces, other specialized agencies are doing everything possible to maintain security and stability in Crimea and in Sevastopol at the proper level. Consequently, I do not see any reason to doubt it," he said.
