MOSCOW, December 18. /TASS/. Crimea’s authorities should find acceptable solutions to implement the law on exoneration of Crimean peoples, Russian President Vladimir Putin said at an annual news conference on Thursday.
Putin disagreed with a journalist’s viewpoint that the decree on exoneration of Crimean peoples Putin signed in April is “lifeless.” He said measures envisioned by the document are discussed in Crimea’s parliament.
“The local authorities should find mutually acceptable solutions that will make it possible to implement the law,” the Russian leader said. “If there’s no solution yet, it should be found.”
Putin said the fact that the decree has been signed has “a serious political and moral significance.” He recalled that in particular the decision was made on the status of the Russian, Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar languages as state ones in Crimea, “which had never happened before.”
The president admitted that the most important issue is the problem of legalization of land. “I understand that it is difficult,” he said.
The head of state said “the issue of repressed peoples is a separate topic, and the state should close the issue.”
He assured journalists that the Russian government will keep supporting former repressed peoples, including in establishing social and other infrastructure.
“It’s not the issue of today or tomorrow, not even because it requires money — there’s never enough money — but because it requires elaboration,” Putin explained. “We will do that for sure.”
