The head of Committee of the Crimean Parliament’s public diplomacy and international relations Yuriy gempel appreciated the idea of the Kiev authorities to create an international platform for “de-occupation” of the Peninsula.
Earlier, the Minister of foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba invited members of the European Union, the USA and the UK to participate in the creation of such a platform. Hemel have called this idea of imitation of violent foreign policy.
“No one platform will not be able to change the decision of the Crimean people in 2014 — to return to live in their homeland, in Russia. No negotiations on this score can not be. The decision of the Crimeans decided finally and irrevocably. The Kiev authorities should keep a pointless venture without raising a storm in a glass”, — the Deputy told RIA Novosti.
HEMPEL urged Kiev to stop the Ukrainian authorities unleashed the conflict in the South-East of the country, and the Crimean people to leave alone.
“Human rights in Crimea after returning to Russia as never protected. Even despite the sanctions, Crimea is developing dynamically,” — said HEMPEL.
Crimea became a Russian region after held there in March 2014 referendum in which 96.77 percent of voters in Crimea and 95.6% of residents of Sevastopol voted for joining Russia. Ukraine still considers Crimea its but temporarily occupied territory.
The Russian leadership has repeatedly stated that the residents of Crimea have made this choice in a democratic way, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Crimea issue “is closed permanently.”
