The so-called "Yalta International Economic Forum", illegally organized in the occupied Crimea, was attended by only two out of five announced participants from Austria, the source informed referring to the Ukrainian Embassy in Austria.
“Instead of five, two arrived: Johannes Hübner (lower house of parliament) and Hans-Joerg Jenevin (upper house),” the embassy informed.
Reportedly, both policies belong to the ultra-right Austrian Freedom Party, which in January concluded a cooperation agreement with the party "United Russia".
The so-called "Yalta International Economic Forum" was organized by the illegally formed body - "the Government of the Republic of Crimea" and the fund "Yalta International Economic Forum" with the support of the Administration of the President of the Russian Federation.
The Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea informed that participation of official foreign representatives in such an event will be considered as a recognition of the recent changes in the status of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol and the legitimacy of the occupation regime.
