Chairman of the Coordination Council of the Sevastopol city administration Alexei Chaly signed on Tuesday a degree "On the Cessation of Operations of People's Militia Units".
"In view of the accession of the city of Sevastopol to the Russian Federation as a constituent territory and the establishment of a state border with Ukraine, to recognize as inexpedient further operations of people's militia units. To disband people's militia units," says the decree posted on the Coordination Council website.
Thousands of city residents organized themselves at a critical moment for defending Sevastopol: they patrolled the streets, protected strategic city infrastructure and stood guard at road blocks, the website said.
