The State Duma Rejected the Idea of Negotiations on the Status of Crimea
OREANDA-NEWS. According to the Deputy of the State Duma of the Russian Federation from the Crimean region Mikhail Sheremet, any negotiations on the status of Crimea are excluded, since this issue has been resolved unequivocally and finally.
This statement was a response to the message of the Ukrainian mission on the status of Crimea. The fact is that earlier, the Ukrainian Delegation to the EU on its Facebook page reported that the Foreign Affairs Committee of the European Parliament had approved the reports on Ukraine.
The document includes, among other things, the condemnation of the "illegal annexation" and the militarization of Crimea, support for the idea of creating an International Crimean platform for the return of the peninsula under Ukrainian jurisdiction, as well as an appeal to the EU to appoint an EU special representative for Crimea and Donbass, including for the need to start the format negotiations on the "de-occupation" of Crimea. The next step will be voting for the report at the plenary session of the European Parliament in December.
According to Mikhail Sheremet, this report contradicts not only the real state of affairs, but also common sense. He is surprised by the position of the MEPs, who are so reckless and clearly biased in their assessments of Crimea. He regrets that in big politics, to which the issue of the status of the Crimean peninsula, unfortunately, there is no place for the opinion and voice of the Crimeans. He states that any negotiations on the status of Crimea are excluded, since this issue has been resolved unequivocally and finally. Crimea is a legal Russian territory, and there can be no other interpretations.
