Permanent Representative: Crimea to continue inviting European politicians
Crimea will continue to show the real situation to European politicians despite a ban on such visit imposed by Ukraine, Crimea’s Vice Premier and Permanent Representative to the Russian President, Georgy Muradov, said.
"During all international forums, Ukraine raises the issue saying that no one is allowed to visit Crimea, and independent observers cannot see anything here. However, as soon as these independent observers say that they will come, tremendous pressure is exerted on them through diplomatic and political channels to prevent them from visiting the region," TASS cited Muradov as saying.
"We will continue this practice. We will push ahead with efforts aimed at making sure that people in the world have a better understanding of what is really going on in Crimea," Muradov said commenting on the visit by European parliamentarians who are to be sanctioned by Kiev in the wake of their visit.
