Pressure and sanctions against Russia should lead to the return of Crimea to Ukraine, said Ukrainian Deputy Minister “on issues of temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons”, Yuri Grymchak.
According to him, the mechanism for the return of the Crimea, the People’s Democratic Republic of Lugansk and the People’s Republic of Donetsk is the same.
“This pressure is economic, financial and other. That is, these are very serious sanctions. ” said Grymchak.
He added that Russia “must pay very much for its politics.”
According to the deputy minister, it is necessary to make issues of the peninsula become “so toxic” for Moscow, that its return to Ukraine “will be a salvation for Russia itself.”
