Deputy Minister suggested that the pro-Russian forces could win.

Asked whether Ukraine had done everything possible to prevent the elections in Crimea, Tuka said: "Honestly, I think, yes. We did not intend to prevent the elections physically. We warned those who will participate... in the organization of such events in occupied Crimea about possible legal consequences of such actions. Since the majority of people who organize the elections live there, they are citizens of Ukraine. We will initiate opening of some criminal cases," Tuka added.
