Foreign Ministry reacted to EU statement on population census in Crimea

Deputy Foreign Minister of the Russian Federation Alexander Grushko compared the EU’s condemnation of the population census in Crimea with a “hackneyed record”, RIA Novosti reports.

EU officials said the population census and conscription campaign in Crimea and Sevastopol were “an attempt to legitimize the annexation of Crimea.” Also, the EU believes that this will undermine the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

“This is a hackneyed record in the genre of a parallel world. No statements can change the international legal reality formed by the free expression of the will of the Crimeans, ”Grushko replied.

Earlier it was reported that the population census will be held throughout Russia from October 15 to November 14. It has already been attended by about a million residents of the country.
