German MP Helmut Seiffen that on 3 February a delegation of politicians from the right-wing party “Alternative for Germany” arrived in Crimea, said that he and his colleagues found no human rights violations on the Peninsula.
“The fact is that those people whom we met during our trip feel completely relaxed. This is a direct indication that people live here without fear,” — quotes the representative of the Parliament of North Rhine-Westphalia RIA Novosti.
Moreover, in this Russian region Seiffen feels safer than at home. “We in Germany, large cities have become very unsafe,” — said the MP.
Seiffen admitted that he resented the reaction of the Ukrainian authorities on the visit of a delegation of politicians from Germany. “I consider it impolite and ugly, that we are threatened by foreign state because of our trip. The Ukrainian government has shown its true face as a political force, who willingly resorted to the language of violence,” he said.
We will remind, at present in the Crimea with a seven-day visit, the delegation from Germany, composed of the deputies of the regional parliaments of Berlin, Brandenburg and North Rhine-Westphalia from a right-wing party “Alternative for Germany”. In the last election it was held in the Bundestag.
The Ambassador of Ukraine in Germany Andrey Melnik previously promised to the German members of the “dire legal consequences”, after which the Ukrainian Prosecutor’s office opened a criminal case on the fact of violation of the procedure “to enter the temporarily occupied territory.”
