Ukraine's Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk appealed to the German Foreign Ministry to condemn the visit of Andreas Maurer, a member of the Left Party, to the Russian-occupied Crimea.
“In connection with illegal visit of the Left Party’s member A. Maurer to the occupied Crimea I urged the German Foreign Ministry to strongly condemn this and other such ventures,” the Ambassador twitted.
Earlier, the media reported that a delegation of German politicians, including Andreas Maurer, visited the occupied Crimea. Moreover, a member of the Left Party proposed to submit for consideration the issue of recognizing Crimea as part of Russia and lifting the anti-Russian sanctions to the deputies of the town of Quakenbrück.
It was reported earlier that the occupation Crimean authorities are considering opening a representative office of Crimea in Germany. Most likely, the so-called representation will be established as a trade mission or tourist information center.
