Ukraine’s Acting Minister for Foreign Affairs, Andrii Deshchytsia, warned Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov in a phone call on Monday not to invade his country.

“I expressed our concern about the situation,” Deshchytsia told CNN’s Fred Pleitgen, sitting in for Christiane Amanpour. “I also warned him not to use any military force to protect Russians in eastern Ukraine, since we have enough power to protect Russian-speaking [people].”

“We both agreed that we have to deploy all necessary means to deescalate [the] situation.”

The leader of Crimea’s Muslim minority, the Tatars, warned on Monday of possible bloodshed in Crimea and southern Ukraine.

“Our largest, biggest concern is about the possibility of clashes, of large scale bloodshed in Crimea,” Mustafa Dzhemilev, who is a member of Ukraine’s parliament, told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour in an exclusive interview.

The Ukrainian military will fight, despite an imbalance in power, if the Russian military goes further into Ukraine, Dzhemilev said.

“No matter how weak we are in military in comparison to Russia…we’ll start fire.”

“We’ll open fire if [the Russian] Army will move further. And it’s hardly within Russia’s interests or President Putin’s interests, but we can’t exclude anything.”

“But all this will result in bloodshed.”
