Russian deputy: “Recognition of Karabakh's independence by French Senate is hypocrisy and political game”
- 26 November 2020
“If people’s self-determination is so important for French Senate, the respectful approach to democratic values and efforts of people not a deliberate political game, but really sincere, then following the independence of Nagorno Karabakh, a decision should be adopted that Crimea is a territory of Russia,” said the deputy of Russian State Duma Mikhail Sheremet in his statement to RIA Novosti, APA’s Moscow correspondent reports.
A deputy from the Crimea region has said it would be a logical step for the French Senate to recognize Crimea as Russian territory after the recognition of Nagorno-Karabakh's independence: “It would be a delayed, but logical step. Otherwise, the decision of French senators is nothing but hypocrisy.”
According to the Russian deputy, the decision of the French Senate on Garabagh is a deliberate “political game” in the attitude to Turkey in order to solve geopolitical tasks: “In regard to Crimea France conducts a completely different political game. I do not believe that French senators concern about the fate of people in Nagorno Garabagh. I do not believe that they may recognize Crimea. If France government really cared about people, they would try to stop military conflict long ago, and to attempt not to allow human losses in Garabagh, as Russia did it by deploying its peacekeepers.”
