In this way Mariani is responding to the amendment proposed by Ukraine and approved by PACE, “demonstrating that it is nonsense and that it will not have any consequences for those who find it necessary to visit Crimea”, - added Mariani.

“Here’s the reaction of a well-known French deputy to this amendment”, - stated Pushkov.
