The First Deputy Chairman of the State Council of the Republic of Crimea Yefim Fiks offered Latvia to join the Republic of Crimea and establish a new separate municipality. He gave that statement amid the actions of Latvia’s ambassador, who visited the Ukrainian entry/exit checkpoints (EECP — editorial note) “Kalanchak” and “Chaplinka” (“Perekop”).
According to the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine, the Acting Chief of the Kherson body guard unit informed the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of the Republic of Latvia in Ukraine about the operation mode of the EECP and crossing border permit conditions for citizens.
“Now, Ukraine is dealing with its issues and solutions. So, let them dance and play their games. Habitants of Crimea don’t intend to go to Latvia. Nevertheless, we don’t mind if Latvia becomes part of Crimea. Well, why not? In Crimea, we have got 25 municipal units and after that we will have 26 ones — the new unit will be called the Latvian municipal entity. The step the ambassador of Latvia took, when he visited the Ukrainian entry/exit checkpoints, brings discredit to the international law and actions of the country this diplomat represents”, — Yefim Fiks told.
