Founder of the Coalition for the Renewal of the Republic Janusz Korwin-Mikke told Russian daily Izvestia that when the French MPs visited Crimea they practically recognized the current legal status of the region. Mikke also said that he wished to visit the Crimean Republic together with his colleagues but said that it would be possible only after October 25, because he is currently too busy with the elections campaign.
The head of the State Duma Committee for Relations with CIS Nations, Leonid Slutsky, explained to RIA Novosti that the Russian parliament welcomed all colleagues from Europe and from all over the world.
“The doors to Crimea are open and new initiatives confirm that the ice had been broken and Europe wants to know truth,” he said.
