On January 23rd, a conference against the EU’s Russian sanctions was held in the very same halls where the majority of parliamentarians usually vote to broaden such sanctions.
It might also have been the first time that the prime minister of Crimea, Sergey Aksionov, appeared – at least virtually – in the European Parliament. Aksionov was listed on the EU sanction list on March 17, 2014. The official reason: “Aksyonov was elected ‘Prime Minister of Crimea’ in the Crimean Verkhovna Rada on February 27th, 2014, in the presence of pro-Russian gunmen. His ‘election’ was decreed unconstitutional by Oleksandr Turchynov on 1 March. He actively lobbied for the ‘referendum’ of 16 March 20.”
Here is the complete video with English subtitles.
