Russian politicians and experts have responded to the promise of Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to never recognize reunification with Crimea.
Member of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Sergei Tsekov said that the peninsula does not need to recognize its Russian status from third countries.
“We are not surprised by this statement by the Turkish Foreign Minister,” the parliamentarian said.
According to him, the most important thing for the region is that it has become an integral part of Russia.
“For Crimea, the most important recognition is recognition and support of Russia,” Tsekov added.
The senator is confident that sooner or later the international community will be forced to recognize Crimea as Russian, since this is a fait accompli historical fact to be reckoned with.
