Ukraine’s Vitali Klitschko has warned of an impending catastrophe in Crimea after its vote to join Russia.

Tipped by some to be Ukraine’s next president, Klitschko also said he feared ethnic cleansing in the peninsula.

“Crimea is today on the brink of a humanitarian disaster. The Ukrainian citizens there are left at the mercy of foreign occupiers and local criminals. There is also a risk of ethnic cleansing. Crimean Tatars, ethnic Ukrainians and all patriots of Ukraine are threatened,” Klitschko said.

Despite the potential annexation of Crimea by The Kremlin, Klitschko insisted Kyiv would not cut off energy supplies and support to the region.
