Head of Norway’s Delegation on Crimea: ‘Nice Place Where People Live in Peace’

Head of Norway’s Delegation on Crimea: ‘Nice Place Where People Live in Peace’:

While European countries are keeping sanctions against Russia amid its reunification with Crimea, more and more EU residents are eager to come to the peninsula and see the local situation with their own eyes.

People in Norway were very positive about seeing Crimea, and “this is how our diverse team was formed,” the head of the Norwegian delegation that is currently paying a weeklong visit to Crimea, Hendrick Weber, told Radio Sputnik.

The delegation includes representatives of different professions and backgrounds, whose main goal is to show their compatriots that Crimea is “a nice place, that people are living in peace and that there is no war here,” Weber said.

‘Neglect of human rights’: Crimean official blasts EU’s refusal to recognize poll as ‘lawful’

‘Neglect of human rights’: Crimean official blasts EU’s refusal to recognize poll as ‘lawful’

H/t reader squodgy:

“The Crimeans voted 96:4 to align with Russia in 2014 , but EU on instruction from USA rejected vote.
When East Germany melded with West Germany, nobody questioned it even though a large section of East and larger portion of West were not happy.
That’s WESTERN DEMOCRACY folks.”

Russian Lawmaker Issues Sobering Threat: We’re Willing To Use Nukes To Defend Crimea

Russian Lawmaker Issues Sobering Threat: We’re Willing To Use Nukes To Defend Crimea:

As of late, the media has forgotten about tensions between Ukraine, NATO, and Russia. Crimea and the conflict in Eastern Ukraine have largely left the public’s awareness. However, that shouldn’t be the case, because this region is still a powder keg that could blow at any time. And if it does, it could easily result in another world war.

If you don’t think the situation in Ukraine could still explode into a wider conflict, take a look at what this member of Russia’s parliament recently said at an international security conference.

Things Will Get Worse Until US Stops Lying About Crimea

Things Will Get Worse Until US Stops Lying About Crimea:

SUMMARY

Unless the U.S. government’s lies about Crimea — the ‘Russia seized Crimea’ narratives — become acknowledged to be lies, war between the U.S. and Russia can only continue to become increasingly likely, because the world is sliding toward World War III based upon these lies, and will therefore inevitably continue that slide until these lies are publicly repudiated by the U.S. government, which is their sole source. The liar on this is clearly the U.S. and not Russia: the U.S. is the entire source for the alleged cause for war between the U.S. and Russia.

The preparations for war between the U.S. and Russia continue naturally apace until the United States publicly acknowledges that Russia had not ‘seized’ Crimea — acknowledges that the cause for all of these war-preparations by the U.S. and its NATO and other allies against Russia is fake, a U.S. lie, and that Russia is purely America’s victim in this entire matter and acting in a 100% defensive way against America’s aggressions in this matter.
