Ukraine needs to develop a special mechanism of accreditation for Ukrainian journalists in the occupied Crimea, a Russian lawyer Nikolai Polozov stated in his interview with Hromadske TV.

“Of course, the Russian authorities will put various obstacles. But Ukrainian journalists have covered the court hearings in Russia ... I do not see any significant obstacles for Ukrainian journalists to come to Crimea, given a political will,” said the lawyer.

Earlier, Nikolai Polozov expressed the view that the Russian occupying power in Crimea considers the Crimean Tatar people separatists, because they do not agree to the annexation of the peninsula, and do not support the occupants.

Russia occupied Crimea in 2014. Ukrainian Parliament recognized February 20, 2014 an official start date of the annexation of the peninsula.
