MOSCOW, January 21. /TASS/. Chairperson of Russian State Duma’s Committee on Security and Fighting Corruption Irina Yarovaya has compared statements of Ukrainian Finance Minister Natalie Jaresko to Voice of America broadcasts. Jaresko said at the World Economic Forum in Davos that Ukraine will make new diplomatic efforts to return Crimea.
"US citizen Natalie Jaresko delegated as part of [US Assistant Secretary of State Victoria] Nuland’s cookies export to the post of Ukraine’s Finance Minister, has uncovered the plan of diplomacy ‘the American way’," Yarovaya told reporters adding that Jaresko "is broadcasting like the Voice of America."
"Jaresko’s statement about new diplomatic steps to return Crimea is in fact a statement on new provocations and illegal actions against citizens of this sovereign jurisdiction established by the supreme form of civilized democracy in international law — the referendum among residents of Crimea and Sevastopol," she added.
Crimea, where most residents are ethnic Russians, refused to recognize the legitimacy of authorities brought to power amid riots during a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. In mid-March in 2014, Crimea re-joined Russia following a referendum. More than 82% of the electorate took part in the vote. Over 96% backed splitting from Ukraine and spoke in favor of reuniting with Russia.
