MOSCOW, December 8. /TASS/. The solution of the issue of Kiev failing to pay its debt to Russia under "strong popular pressure" raises the question why such popular pressure in Crimea is not taken into account when the talk is about the peninsula’s reunification with Russia, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Facebook on Tuesday.
"Ukrainian, so to speak, Finance Minister Natalia Yaresko, earlier an official at the US Department of State, a businesswoman and Orange revolutionary, explained why her current country cannot pay off its three-billion debt to Russia: ‘In that issue, we feel a strong pressure on the part of the people, who speaks against the paying off of that debt,’" Zakharova said.
"There are no questions," she continued. "But one: is ‘strong pressure’ on the part of Crimea’s people considered as an argument for its reunification with Russia?"
