SIMFEROPOL, December 10. /TASS/. Member of the European Parliament and leader of the Polish party KORWiN Janusz Korwin-Mikke has said during his meeting with head of Crimea Sergey Aksyonov that he could not find opponents of Crimea’s reunification with Russia during his visit to the Black Sea peninsula.
"Most people are very happy that Crimea is now part of Russia after Ukraine. Maybe, more than 86% support this (Crimea’s reunification with Russia)," the lawmaker said. "People say that there is a normal government in Russia, and Kiev was good for nothing. Even the language problem was not as big as the problem of authority."
Crimea Prime Minister Sergey Aksyonov asked the Polish politicians to convey reliable information to people in their country. "At the moment, it is strategically important to convey truthful information to people in Europe. As soon as people coming here see Crimeans, they change their point of view imposed by certain media in the West," Aksyonov said. "I think that you will too realize after meeting Crimeans and our officials that it was a pure expression of will and the desire of all people in Crimea to return to the land of their ancestors." "No one wanted to live in the conditions that were in Ukraine. We realized that Crimea has future only with Russia," he added. The Polish politician promised to convey to Poland's authorities what he saw in Crimea upon his return home.
Earlier this year, delegations of lawmakers from France, Serbia and Italy have visited Crimea. In September, former Italian Prime Minister paid a private visit the peninsula at the invitation of the Russian president. Italian parliamentarians and the Northern League party have confirmed their intention to visit Crimea before the end of this year.
