The Extraordinary Plenipotentiary Ambassador of Ukraine to Latvia Yevhen Perebiynis said this, reports Latvijas Radio.
According to him, only the real economic success of Ukraine and standard of living which will become far ahead of the Russian can help to restore the status quo.
"There is only a political and diplomatic way of returning Crimea. The successful Ukraine is an integral part of this political and diplomatic path. Ukraine needs the ‘success story’. When the standard of living in Ukraine will be much higher than in Russia and the Crimea, I think it will be easier to restore the status quo and return Crimea in the Ukraine. It is the path we chose and we are moving this way”, Perebiynis said.
He added that the Crimea return and reintegration of the occupied territories is a very complex process.
