Delegates from dozens of countries have visited Crimea in 2016
Over 60 delegations from dozens of countries have come to Russia’s southwestern Crimea region this year, defyingWestern restrictions, the republic’s deputy prime minister said Tuesday, Sputnik reports.
"We have had guests from France, Italy, Jordan and many other nations. The country count is already at several dozens…This year alone has seen over 60 delegations visit Crimea," Georgy Muradov said during a press conference at the Rossiya Segodnya International Information Agency.
"This is increasing awareness that any action to isolate the Crimean population from the rest of the world is illegal," said Muradov, who is a permanent Crimea representative in the Russian president's administration.
