MOSCOW, December 18. /TASS/. Discrimination of Crimeans and Sevastopol residents on the part of the European Union for politicized reasons is inadmissible, the Russian Foreign Ministry said Thursday in connection with the European Council’s decisions on Crimea and Sevastopol.
“We consider absolutely inadmissible any discrimination of Crimeans and Sevastopol residents for politicized reasons,” the ministry said.
“Brussels should realize that Crimea and Sevastopol are an integral part of the Russian Federation,” it said. “In this connection, we would like to remind the EU of our legitimate right to properly react to its so-called restrictive measures regarding all Russian citizens and legal entities without exception.”
