Crimea, which belongs to Russia is a fait accompli, which Moscow will not give up, said the leader of the Social democratic party of Germany (SPD) and candidate for Chancellor of the country, Martin Schulz. “I think the situation is that the Russians have made it a fait accompli, on which they will insist,” said he, adding that he believes the reunification of the Peninsula with Russia “serious violation of international law”, reports TASS.
However, he found it difficult to answer the question of term of a finding of Crimea as part of Russia, noting that it is impossible to take it away from Moscow’s power. “It might only be possible via negotiations”, — said Schultz.
He urged Germany to make such a dialogue with Moscow, which Berlin will “talk openly”, and make suggestions, “if Russia is ready to go.”
“In any case, don’t need the arms race, as it wants to (the President of the United States Donald) trump and, perhaps, want to (Russian President Vladimir) Putin”, — said Schultz.
August 19, Deputy Chairman of the German party “Alternative for Germany” (ADH) Alexander Gauland said that it would be right to recognize the Crimea a part of Russia.
Putin has repeatedly said that the question of supplies of Crimea is closed forever.
