SIMFEROPOL, October 27. /TASS/. The actions of the Russian Aerospace Forces in Syria directed against militants of the Islamic State (IS) terrorist group may change the world’s attitude towards Crimea’s status, leader of the Democratic Party of Serbia Sanda Raskovic Ivic who is visiting the Black Sea peninsula told reporters on Tuesday.
"I think the attitude will change profoundly in Syria. If Russia does it right in Syria, some of the European Union member countries will be sure to change their attitude towards Crimea as well. Sometimes you have to defeat someone psychologically to make him cooperate [with you]," Raskovic Ivic said.
According to president of the Dveri (Doors) Serbian patriotic movement Bosko Obradovic, virtually no one may question the fact that Crimea is part of Russia. "Crimea has been de facto recognized as part of Russia. It is practically impossible to hear in media and official statements attempts questioning this. It is clear to everyone that this is an ancient Russian land, and it is no longer possible to challenge this," he told a news conference.
The delegation of Serbian lawmakers and public figures has arrived in Crimea on Tuesday. It is due to meet with counterparts from the regional parliament, presidential envoy to the Crimean Federal District Oleg Belaventsev, head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov and Chairman of the State Council Vladimir Konstantinov.
The treaty on Crimea’s incorporation into Russia was signed on March 18, 2014. Ukraine, the United States and the European Union refused to recognize the peninsula’s independence and its reunification with Russia.
