MOSCOW, March 21, /ITAR-TASS/. Chief of the Russian presidential administration Sergei Ivanov foresees hard and meticulous work on Crimea’s integration into the Russian economy.
“There's a large amount of work - in the legal, financial and other spheres,” he told reporters, recalling that Crimea’s integration into the Russian economy was to be completed by January 1, 2015.
“Ukraine has given nothing to Crimea for the past 20 years,” Ivanov said pointing to bad condition of the roads on this Black Sea peninsula as an example.
“I admit that roads are one of Russian troubles but their roads are as different from ours as chalk and cheese,” the Kremlin official said.
