Kuleba warns of possible Russian provocation in occupied Crimea

The Titan chemical plant in the occupied Crimea evacuated the entire night shift, which could be part of preparations for Russia's provocation against Ukraine.

This was reported on Twitter by Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Ukrinform saw.

"Worrying reports from Crimea on the entire night shift of Titan chemicals plant in Armyansk evacuated from the facility. This might be a preparation for another staged provocation by Russia. Moscow seems to have no limits in attempts to falsify pretexts for further aggression," the minister wrote.

As reported earlier, on February 21, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed decrees recognizing two self-proclaimed entities in the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine. Agreements between quasi-republics and Russia provide for military assistance.
