Recall that Kuchma recently stated that the Crimea has already entered the orbit of the Russian Federal system and, therefore, “actually” become part of Russia. And on Saturday 3 September the President of Russia Vladimir Putin said that the question of territorial belonging of the Crimea “historically closed”. Then the Russian leader added that the return to the former system does not exist at all.
Now Petro Poroshenko says members of Parliament: “Crimea is that Crimea was and is Ukrainian Crimea. And no other calls will not.” Poroshenko added that Putin’s statement said “it is nonsense”, as the issue of Crimea was really closed in 1954 and in 1991.
Poroshenko also urged to enter against Russia additional sanctions for violations of the rights of the Crimean Tatar people, reports “MK”in Crimea.
