Crimean authorities have plans to respond to the European punishment economic development of the Russian Crimea, said Last news 1st Deputy speaker of the state Council of the Republic Konstantin Bakharev.
The EU Council officially confirmed the extension of economic sanctions against Crimea and Sevastopol until June 23, 2016.
"as long as European bureaucrats will dream about the return of the Peninsula under the jurisdiction of Ukraine, we will develop the Russian Crimea, Is a response to the punishment," said Bakharev.
in his vision, the Crimea is not worth paying attention to punishment, because in the agenda are much more important issues. Ensuring efficient functioning of the free economic zone, aid to Crimean business adapts to work in the Russian legal field, as well as implementation of the Federal target program of the Crimea and Sevastopol until 2020.
"If to speak about the negative impact of sanctions on Crimean economy, in my opinion, the inhabitants of the Republic today in practice do not feel. Huge investments from the European countries we have never received, and the main market for Crimean subjects Europe was not, for that reason, harm, in my opinion, these minimum penalties ", - noted Vice-the speaker.
at the same time Bakharev believes that punishment is an attempt to punish Crimea for the referendum on 16 March 2014 selection in favor of reunification with Russia." The very nature of these penalties, in my opinion, discriminatory and immoral ", - noted Vice-the speaker.
according to him, today the majority of MEPs are in favour of the termination of the sanctions war between the EU and Russia, but their voices don't want to hear.
"most importantly, it is surprising that the decision to extend the sanctions were adopted without discussion, although we know that today in the EU is hotly debate regarding the appropriateness of extending the punishment relative to Russia and Crimea. For anybody not a secret that the result of these punishments Europe is losing millions of jobs and brings billions of dollars in losses, " Bakharev.
penalties include a ban on imports of products produced in Crimea or Sevastopol into the European Union
