Crimea appreciated the significance of Lukashenka's visit

Head of the Crimean Parliament Konstantinov: Lukashenka’s visit will give a start to joint projects As the head of the Crimean parliament Vladimir Konstantinov told RIA Novosti, this will give a start for the development of joint projects.

“We saw the public reaction of the President of Belarus to the invitation to Crimea, now we are waiting. I am convinced that this will happen and give a start to joint projects that we and the citizens of friendly Belarus need, “the parliamentarian said.

The head of the Crimean public chamber Alexander Formanchuk pointed out that Lukashenko should have visited the peninsula back in 2014, after the referendum. He added that the head of the Belarusian state has abandoned the policy of double standards and acts as a real ally of Russia.

Earlier, Lukashenka recognized Crimea as Russian de facto and de jure. The head of the Belarusian state also spoke about his visit to the peninsula. According to him, a trip there together with Russian President Vladimir Putin will mean the recognition of Crimea as Russian territory.
