KIEV, July 29. /TASS/. Kiev government will definitely come up with a reaction if Italian and Hungarian parliament members visit Crimea, the press secretary of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry, Maryana Betsa, told a news briefing on Wednesday.
If the visit does take place, "the reaction to it and the consequences will be guaranteed," Betsa said.
Manlio di Stefano, a member of the foreign policy committee at the Italian parliament's Chamber of Deputies told Kommersant Daily earlier the deputies had decided to make a visit to Crimea.
"We've decided to go to Crimea and to Moscow along with members of a delegation of the Cinque Stelle (Five Star) Movement," he said."
"I'm going to contact the Russian embassy in Rome so as to get down to preparing the visit," Di Stefano said.
The delegation plans to arrive in Crimea via Russia and the objective of the tour will be to find out how people in Crimea are faring after the March 2014 referendum, which led to Crimea's reunification with Russia. Readiness to join the deputies on their trip to Russia has been expressed by Senator Gergio Divina, who represents Lega Nord political party.
Kommersant also said the head of the foreign affairs committee at the Hungarian parliament, Marton Gyongyosi had made public his readiness to go to Crimea.
Last week, the peninsular region and the federal city of Sevastopol located on its territory were visited by French deputies. Their trip, too, provoked an irritated reaction from Kiev.
