The authorities of Crimea: Kiev will not return to the Peninsula even “international levers”


No matter what air-castles and mythical plans may have built the Kiev authorities, Crimea will never return to Ukraine, stated the first Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Mikhail Sheremet.

SIMFEROPOL, 14 Jan –. The return of the Crimea back into the Ukraine is impossible, even if the Kiev authorities will use international leverage and will be used to create a new contact group involving the EU and the US, said the first Vice-Premier of the Crimean government Mikhail Sheremet.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko announced plans to create in order to “return Crimea” international mechanism in the form of “Geneva+”, which will include partners from the EU, USA and perhaps the countries signatories of the Budapest Memorandum on security assurances in connection with Ukraine’s accession to the Treaty on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons (it was signed by Ukraine, USA, Russia and UK).

“Crimea will never return to the Ukraine, how would they (Kyiv authorities – as amended) whatever you dream, whatever castles in the air and mythical plans build, whatever created the international leverage and the group, the more that all Crimeans are United in the opinion that no other way than to live together with Russia”, — said Sheremet.

First Deputy Prime Minister believes that the initiative of creation of the contact group “Geneva plus” Poroshenko dictated from the outside and looks ridiculous. “We understand that he (Poroshenko – ed.) any decisions for themselves never took — always at the behest of Western countries, who dictated his every move”, — said the Agency interlocutor.

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. Ukrainian authorities and Western countries have refused to accept the will of the people and has imposed sanctions in the region.
