Russia understands that Crimea has no prospects as part of the Russian Federation, Foreign Affairs Minister of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin said on air of the ATR TV Channel.
- It seems to me that many people in Moscow realize that Crimea has no future with Russia, said Klimkin. According to him, the Western partners of Ukraine have a similar understanding of the situation.
In addition, the Ukrainian Foreign Minister said that he repeatedly told this phrase the Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in the framework of the "Normandy format" meetings, but the latter claimed that this format operates to address the Donbas issue solely.
Klimkin stressed that one of the reasons explaining why Russia sustains the conflict in Donbas is the desire to divert attention from the annexation of Crimea.
June, 17 the Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said that he hopes the OSCE PA will support a separate resolution on the human rights violation in Crimea.
