MOSCOW, March 02, /ITAR-TASS/. International observers in Crimea could rather disappoint the US as they would see there the support for Russia from the local people, head of the State Duma’s international affairs committee Alexei Pushkov wrote in his Twitter on Sunday.
“At the UN the USA call for sending a mission of observers to Crimea. But the US will be disappointed: the observers will be able to see there a mighty support for Russia,” he wrote.
The US Ambassador to the UN Samantha Power said international observers should be sent to Ukraine immediately to monitor the situation there and to prevent whatever violations.
