MINSK, June 7. /TASS/. The speaker of Russia’s Federation Council (upper house of parliament), Valentina Matviyenko, believes that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s protest over her recent working trip to Crimea was a sign of feebleness.
"Such statements are a product of either feebleness or reluctance to recognize the objective reality," Matviyenko told the media, adding that it would make no sense to comment or reply to such statements in any way.
She recalled that Crimea and Sevastopol, a federal city, were full-fledged territories of Russia.
"This is a historically accomplished fact," she said. Matviyenko expressed the hope that the common sense would prevail, even though this might take some time.
