The Deputy of the regional Parliament of Germany of North Rhine-Westphalia Helmut Seiffen said that the head of Ukraine should be people able to take the results of the referendum in the Crimea.

Arrived on Saturday in Crimea, the representatives of the German delegation, after visiting the iconic sites of the Peninsula and close communication with the local population came to the conclusion that the choice of the people in a referendum in the spring of 2014 was very deliberate.

“I believe that the sanctions imposed because of the referendum in the Crimea and the unification with Russia, is counterproductive. This path of escalation”, – said Seiffen RIA “Novosti”.

According to the German Deputy in Ukraine should come to power political forces, which would agree with the will of the Crimean people.

“And then there was peace between peoples. And then people would like Ukraine to Crimea to ride and back. And then everything will resume relations”, – said Seiffen.

Before that, the Ambassador of Ukraine in Germany Andrey Melnik has promised MPs from Germany “dire legal consequences,” after which the Prosecutor’s office of Ukraine opened a criminal case due to violations of the rules “of entry to the temporarily occupied territory”.

The Crimean Peninsula joined the Russian Federation in March 2014 after the holding of the referendum. According to the results most of the residents of the region expressed a desire to reunite with Russia. The leadership of Ukraine refused to recognize the results of voting in Moscow, however, convinced that the accession is entirely consistent with the norms of international law. According to the President of Russia Vladimir Putin, the Crimea issue “is closed permanently.”
