SIMFEROPOL, October 27. /TASS/. Ukraine’s Ambassador in Serbia Oleg Alexandrovich has sent a note of protest to the president of the Serbian patriotic movement "Dveri" over the visit of deputies and public figures to Crimea, the movement’s leader Bosko Obradovic told journalists on Tuesday in Simferopol.
The note of protest demonstrated by Obradovic said: "In accordance with Ukrainian legislation and our country’s official position, Crimea is an indispensable part of Ukraine. This means that the self-proclaimed authorities in Crimea are not recognized [by Ukraine]. Visiting Crimea for official meetings with Crimea’s so-called government is unacceptable and is considered as a threat to Ukraine’s national integrity, security and sovereignty."
The delegation from Serbia headed by Democratic Party leader Sanda Raskovic Ivic has arrived on the peninsula today. Delegates will meet with colleagues from the Crimean parliament, Russia’s Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the Crimean Federal District Oleg Belaventsev, Crimea’s head Sergey Aksyonov and chairman of Crimea’s state council Vladimir Konstantinov.
The delegation includes several Serbian MPs the Vice President of the Democratic Party, Milan Lapcevic, the president of the party's political council Dusan Prorokovic, a member of the political council presidium Dragan Trifkovic, as well as representatives of the Dveri (Doors) patriotic movement Bosko Obradovic, Zoran Radojicic, Jugoslav Kiprianovic, and Sefan Svrkota.
Deputies of the French National Assembly visited Crimea this summer. Italy's former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has also made an unofficial trip to the peninsular region.
Members of parliament from Germany, Italy and Switzerland have made known their preparedness to make fact-finding visits to Crimea.
