MOSCOW, March 29. /TASS/. Allegations that human rights are violated in Crimea, and particularly Crimean Tatars are subject to discrimination, are lies, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said in an interview with the US National Interest magazine.
The top diplomat said that "people tend to forget, because they’re being brainwashed every day with very simple phrases like ‘Russia is aggressor in Ukraine,’ ‘annexation of Crimea’ and so on and so forth, instead of laboring your tongues, people should go there."
"Those who go to Crimea, see for themselves how the people live there, and they understand that all these hysterical claims about violation of human rights, about discrimination of the Crimean Tatars, are lies," Lavrov added.
