YALTA, July 24. /TASS/. France, just like the entire Europe, will sooner or later rethink the developments in Crimea over the past year, and the French parliamentarians’ visit may facilitate this process, Chairman of the Russian State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs Leonid Slutsky has told TASS. Slutsky is also the coordinator of the parliamentary group for relations with the French parliament.
According to the Russian lawmaker, France should return to its traditional values, especially in terms of "the real coverage of events in Russia and Crimea." Slutsky noted that sooner or later the rethinking of developments should take place, the way it was in 2008 during the events in Tshinval, the capital of South Ossetia. "I think that … after our colleagues return home, the European political elite will begin to rethink the developments in Crimea," he said.
Slutsky also expressed the hope that after the French politicians’ visit to the Black Sea peninsula delegations from other countries would begin to come there as well. He added that after that "the lies and false assessments that had been present in the European political information space in the past year and a half would become apparent."
