«The Russian and orthodox organizations of the Crimea want the memory of the innocent victims to remind people of the Crimea and Ukraine one more time of the fact that any civil war and national conflict may lead to terror and genocide. Today spiritual heirs of Bela Kun and Zemlyachka have not repented yet; no words of remorse are heard from heirs of the soldiers of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army who committed terrible crimes against civil people in Poland and Western Ukraine. In the society they try to make heroes of the people who cooperated with the Hitlerites and whose hands are mottled with blood of civilians. This is done by the politicians of the opposition, of the political party «Svoboda», the politicians who want to gain power at any cost. That is why the Russian and orthodox people, must do everything possible and impossible to prevent the tragic events in the Crimea and Ukraine!» is declared in the resolution of the rally.
