The head of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in interview to German TV said that the world Commonwealth will never recognize the annexation of Crimea to Russia and held in this matter Parallels with the referendum on the annexation of Austria to Germany under pressure from the Nazis.
"You can't return the Crimea by force, but Russia is not going just because you want him back. For (Russian President Vladimir) Putin would be political suicide to return to the Crimea you. I know that, You know that, the rest of the world knows that Crimea to you will not return, " said senior Deutsche Welle.
"The whole world realizes, because it was annexation. The whole world, over 170 countries around the world have told that do not recognize the annexation (the reunification of the Crimea with Russia – approx. OT), and never acknowledge. Nobody in the EU will never admit it. No air links with the Crimea, there is No business with the Peninsula, no diplomatic relations with the Crimea, no investments related to Crimea – this is the attitude of rejection, " said Poroshenko." If we approve and recognize this case, it will be undermining global security, it will be the stimulation of the aggressor, it will be the same as in 1938. I have the opportunity to imagine that anyone in 1938 said, " You know that Austria will always be Germany?", and my answer will be – No ", - said Poroshenko in response to the question of German leadership, drawing Parallels with the referendum on the annexation of Austria to Germany in 1938, under pressure from the Nazis. In Crimea on March 16 of last year held a referendum on the status of autonomy, more 96% of participants who were in favor of joining region in Russia. 21 March 2014 the President of Russia Vladimir Putin signed the law on ratification of the agreement on joining of Crimea and Sevastopol to Russia and signed the decree about formation of the Crimean Federal district. Kiev and Western countries many times stated that he did not recognize the reunification of Crimea with Russia. In the capital of Russia emphasize that the referendum in Crimea meets standards of international law and the UN Charter.
