Syria Recognizes Crimea as Part of Russia

Southern coast of Crimea

Speaker of the People’s Council of Syria, the country’s parliament, Hadiya Khalaf Abbas, said that Crimea is an integral part of Russia which rejoined the country following expression of free will in referendum, the Russian state-run Sputnik News Agency reported.

“Due to the events which unfolded after the collapse of the Soviet Union until present times, this [federal] subject returned to its roots [Russia] after the expression of free will of the people at a Crimean referendum… We accept that Crimea is an integral part of Russia,” Sputnik qouted Abbas as saying.

We recall, Crimea seceded from Ukraine and reunified with Russia after over 96 percent of local voters supported the move in a referendum in March 2014. Kiev, the EU and the United States denied the right of Crimean population for a self-determination.
