SIMFEROPOL, January 14 /TASS/. Crimean citizens do not expect any fair decisions from Western courts and have no intention to fulfil their rulings, Sergey Aksyonov, the head of Crimea, told journalists on Thursday.
"These trials can end in anything. I do not think that we are going to abide by any of their decisions. Today, it is clear that any decision made by a Western court will be targeted against Russia irrespective of whether we are right or wrong," Aksyonov said commenting on Ukrnafta company’s lawsuit to the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague.
Earlier, Ukrnafta’s press service said that the company had sued Russia at the Permanent Court of Arbitration in The Hague demanding compensation for its gas filling stations in the territory of Crimea.
Aksyonov said that the Crimean authorities would act as the Russian president would say when making the final decision on the gas-filling stations. "I do not believe this Hague court. It will never pass any fair decisions on Russia. Therefore, we will be guided exclusively by decision to be made by our leader," Aksyonov added.
Crimea reunited with Russia after the March 2014 referendum in which more than 95% of inhabitants of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol voted for reunification with Russia. The Crimean authorities have nationalized a considerable part of property, which used to belong to Ukrainian tycoons.
