SIMFEROPOL, October 23 /TASS/. · Serbian deputies will visit Crimea next week, Crimea’s Vice-Premier Georgy Muradov told TASS.
"They represent Serbian opposition parties. Some are members of parliament, others are activists of the Democratic Party of Serbia and representatives of public movements. First of all, they want to see how the Crimean people live and what government system we have built. They are also interested in the political, economic and inter-ethnic situation on the peninsula," Muradov went on to say.
He said that Crimea needed such visits to break the information blockade in the West. "I am sure that they will bring the truth to the Serbs, to the population (of Serbia) and the Serb society. Everybody who has ever come to Crimea tells a totally different story, which does not match at all what is being said about the peninsula in their respective countries," Crimea’s vice-premier added.
Except for separate journalists, the Serbian media has largely been objective and has never distorted facts about Crimea, Muradov stressed.
Crimea’s inhabitants believe that Western businessmen will follow the example of politicians. "For example, Serbian businessmen want to work in Crimea. They can do that safely and normally because their country has not joined the anti-Russian sanctions," Muradov stressed.
A group of French deputies visited Crimea this summer. Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has also paid an informal visit to the peninsula. German and Swiss deputies have also said they wish to go to Crimea like their French colleagues.
