Slutsky: in the siege of Crimea, Kiev is guilty and sponsors of the coup in Ukraine


Crimean MPs are right to demand to recognize the actions of Ukraine’s blockade of the Peninsula genocide, said the head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Leonid Slutsky.

MOSCOW, 13 Jan. The head of the Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Leonid Slutsky believes that the blockade of the Crimea is guilty of not only Kiev and Western sponsors of the coup d’etat in February 2014 and the current anti-Russian hysteria.

The deputies of the Crimean Parliament demanded to stop the act of genocide on the part of Ukraine, which considered the blockade of the Peninsula, and to punish the guilty, says the statement adopted at the session on Wednesday.

“The Crimean deputies demand to recognize the actions of Ukraine’s blockade of the Peninsula genocide. Of course they’re right. But guilty of not only Kyiv, but also those who support and justify such policies – notably the Western sponsors of the coup d’etat in February 2014 and the current anti-Russian hysteria,” said Slutsky journalists.

Crimea and Sevastopol became part of Russia following the results of the March referendum in 2014. Reunification with Russia was supported by 96,77% of Crimeans and 95.6% of Sevastopol.
