“All states have received a letter, which notifies that consent from the Ukrainian side is required to enter Crimea,” stated Mariana Betsa, spokesperson of Ministry of Foreign Affairs in her interview with Interfax. She added that the information on planned visit of German delegation is still not improved.
On July 23-24, a delegation of French MPs headed by Thierry Mariani visited Crimea and met with the head of the republic.
Andreas Gross, Swiss parliamentarian in PACE Socialist Group called it unfair that people of Crimea suffers because of its geopolitical choice and criticized Western sanctions against the peninsula, what, in fact, isolates its inhabitants. Mr. Gross told that he is organizing a mission consisting of European MPs to visit Crimea in October and November. Deputy leader of the nationalist Jobbik party’s Parliamentary Group and Vice-Chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Hungarian National Assembly Márton Gyöngyösi also plans to visit Crimea.
