What French MPs have seen in the Crimea is not what you expect

What French MPs have seen in the Crimea is not what you expect

French parliamentarians visited the Crimea , declared persona non grata in Ukraine. Ukrainian Foreign Ministry will soon send a submission to the SBU for a ban on entry to all ten members of the National Assembly. Meanwhile, politicians from France, returning from a two-day trip to the peninsula, shared his impressions with reporters. According to them, the real situation in the Crimea is radically different from the picture that represents the Western media.
Information collected prior to the trip of the European media, some frightened representatives of the party, Nicolas Sarkozy. This becomes clear from their first impressions of a trip to the Crimea.For example, deputies say that the only military who noticed - guard at the memorial, where they laid flowers.
"The world can not even pretend to 2 days. If the unrest in the region, if there is military action underway, it immediately becomes apparent. I am quite clearly saw that the inhabitants of Crimea are quiet. They are happy that their region is not war came," - said Claude Goasgen, deputy of the National Assembly of France.
In Sevastopol, the parliamentarians noted that they lost mobile communication - French mobile operators do not work in the Crimea.
Impressed deputies and stories of Crimean residents that they often quarrel over the phone with family and friends who live in Ukraine, because, as the events of the past year served in the Kiev media. That is, the inhabitants of the peninsula do not speak about bread, salary or education, and an artificial situation in which neighbors do not want to understand the neighbors. And another delegation outraged that Crimeans can not travel to Europe.
"There are issues that concern ordinary people - for example, the issuance of Schengen visas. Many students can not do an internship in France, because they do not give a visa. In Moscow, they say that they are from the Ukraine, the Ukraine say they are no longer citizens of this country. It turns out that the 2 million inhabitants of the peninsula is practically held hostage "- said Thierry Mariani.Deputy Natssobraniya France made it clear originally comes from the desire to maintain the isolation of the Crimea, leaving his status in doubt.
"I have a reason to use the word" blockade "because it is very similar to Cuba. And what do we do ?! Wait until the American president at the end of his term deigns to make a nice gesture - to admit that in the past, that we" passed " ? Maybe it has already recognized that the Crimea - a Russian, will not wait 60 years, Cuban? " - Continued Mariani.
"We do understand that for those who are constructing in Washington unipolar architecture in the XXI century, it is important that there were no contacts between the Eurasian Economic Union between Russia, first of all, and the countries of Western Europe," - said Leonid Slutsky, Chairman State Duma Committee on CIS Affairs, Eurasian Integration and Relations with Compatriots.
We started talking about sanctions. Deputies believe that the so-called not entrance a list compiled by Russia in response to the actions of the West, very soft - not like the fact that Europe has entered. And if we talk about trade relations, then this issue, MPs believe, need to be addressed as soon as possible. On this depends the already economic security of France and its neighbors.
"According to the report, which was recently published for review by French MPs, the price of sanctions, which is now facing the European economy, equal to two tenths of GDP of all European Union. This is equivalent to the three billion euros are expected to pour into Europe. If you realize that the amount equal to , the need for sanctions in question, "- said Yves Pozzo di Brougham, vice president of the European Commission in the French Senate.
By the end of the meeting the French parliament stated that the house, in Paris, the press is waiting for their return. Yes, and other members of the French parliament, the first to know news from colleagues who visited the Crimea, too, came to personally visit the Russian peninsula. Because that's what they say about Crimea French television channels proved to be very different from what you can see in reality.
