the idea of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky to hold elections in Crimea in the autumn of 2020 Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov called dreams akin to flying to Mars.
Politics is the art of the possible rather than dream about the impossible, and Zelensky is out of real politics with his idea about the election. With the same success he could dream of flying to the Ukraine to Mars, Pushkov wrote in a tweet.
Surprised at the statement Zelensky and first Deputy Chairman of the Duma Committee for international Affairs Viktor Vodolatsky. It is absurd, ridiculous, said the politician. Russia will not allow to hold elections on its territory, and the Crimea became a Russian region by all canons of international law. Even the US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo acknowledged that the issue of Crimea is closed.
state Duma Deputy from the Crimea Ruslan Balbec suggested Zelensky apply, because Russia does not prevent the opening of polling stations of other States on its territory, RIA Novosti reported.
Zelensky has declared its intention to hold elections in the fall of 2020 throughout Ukraine, including the LC and the DNI and also in the Crimea at the Munich security conference.
