The delegation consists of about 20 people and includes members of the European Parliament, politicians from EU member states, CIS countries and Latin America.
“The lawmakers arrived searching for the truth, in order to see how Crimea lives on the third anniversary of its reunification with Russia. Their arrival once again proves that the Western political strategists overplayed with the demonization of Russia. Today, the lawmakers of many countries, including Europe, are coming to Crimea in order to later tell their people about the real state of affairs on the peninsula,” Balbek said.
Balbek stressed that the delegation was represented by reasonable Ukrainian politicians who “are not under the influence of the nationalist fervor.”
The lawmaker added that this was the first visit of Ukrainian politicians to Crimea since the reunification.
