Lavrov smelled manilovism the proposal for the lease of the Crimea

Continued: Lyashko urged the party to hand over the mandate because of the idea about renting Crimea

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that it is difficult to comment on the idea of Ukrainian MPs to hold a referendum on the issue about renting Crimea to Russia for a long time. About it reports TASS.

“Because I myself to rent anything. I even can’t add anything,” — said the Minister.

According to Lavrov, such plans “give with one hand, manilovism, but on the other hand, show that the system will continue to attempt to rewrite the rules of the game”. All this, as stressed by the head of the foreign Ministry, “wittingly or unwittingly distracts attention from the need to fully fully implement the Minsk agreements”, which there is no alternative.

Under manilovism Lavrov obviously had in mind the peculiarities of character of one of the heroes of Gogol’s “Dead souls”. Manilov was typical of daydreaming and project-mongering, not having an active backup.

On 19 February, the newspaper the New York Times reported that in February, shortly before the resignation of Michael Flynn from the post of assistant to the President on national security, his office was handed a document with suggestions on how the American leader Donald trump could remove imposed on Russia restrictions.

The plan was developed by the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Andrey Artemenko member of the Radical party of Oleh Lyashko and the enemy of the current President of Petro Poroshenko. According to the publication, the legislator proposes to organize a referendum in which residents of Ukraine decided whether to give the Crimea to Russia in rent for 50 or 100 years.

Later Artemenko said that we are talking about 30-50 years, and after this period on the Peninsula held a plebiscite, which finally resolved the question of supplies of Crimea. Another item of the plan the main idea of which the Deputy refers to the resolution of the situation through compromise, is the return of Donbass in the Ukraine. “This takes Amnesty to all except those who have committed heinous crimes. The border is piped to Ukraine. But before it is given 72 hours free corridor to the exit of those who do not want to live in Ukraine”, — said the MP. Further arranged nationwide voting, which will determine whether to provide the Donbass special status. Then you create a Fund for the revival of this region, which is filled with different States and in which there will be payments from Russia for the lease of the Crimea. After the execution of this plan, introduced against Moscow sanctions overturned, said Artemenko.
