ROME, May 31 /TASS/. Italy’s right-wing Northern League Party wants to call on the government of Tuscany, a region in central Italy, to recognize the status of Crimea and give up sanctions against Russia, Gianluca Savoini, the Northern League’s adviser on international politics, told TASS on Tuesday.
"After three regions, the Northern League’s representatives in Tuscany intend to submit a resolution [to the regional council] even though the party does not have a majority in this province and we are not sure that the document is going to be approved," Savoini, the founder and president of the Lombardia-Russia association, said.
The regional council of the northern Veneto region where the Northern League has a majority, was the first to adopt the pro-Crimea resolution. A similar document was submitted for consideration in Lombardia where the vote is due to take place on June 7. The same day, the draft resolution will be submitted for consideration to the local authorities in Liguria.
Savoini recalled that the Northern League was one of the first European parties to recognize Crimea’s independent status while its leader Matteo Salvini was one of the first to make a trip to the peninsula. The party deems it necessary to fully restore economic relations with Russia and give up the anti-Russian sanctions, which had caused multi-billion losses to the Italian business.
