ROME, May 16. /TASS/. Media reports saying Venetia was allegedly planning to recognize Crimea as part of Russia "are not consistent with the reality," the press service of the city administration told TASS on Monday.
The Italian Foreign Ministry, for its part, said actions of the ‘Parliament of the Republic of Venice’ nongovernmental organization "don’t reflect the official position of the country on topical international matters, notably on the issue of Crimea’s status".
This refers to a media campaign by the civic organization that has been active within the past six years under the slogans of autonomy verging on separatism. Sometimes the organization cooperates with such parties as Lega Nord (Northern League in English) and Forza Italia (Forward, Italy).
Formally, it sets an aim to promote re-discovery of heritage and traditions of the medieval Most Serene Republic of Venice.
