Crimean representatives were interrupted all the time at an online meeting at the OSCE, which made them unable to speak. This was announced on April 27 by the co-chairman of the Assembly of Slavic Peoples of the Republic, Roman Chegrinets.

Chegrinets after the incident at the meeting noted that Sweden has confirmed the status of “one of the most Russophobic countries.”

“I took part in more than ten meetings of the OSCE and the UN, but there was no such blatant Russophobia. They took the floor, interrupted the performance, but let them speak, ”REN TV quotes him as saying.

Chegrinets added that the representatives of the Crimea expected the opportunity to speak for about five hours, but it turned out that there was no time left for them.

“We have witnessed the statements of the Ukrainian side, whose representatives unceremoniously lied about the life of the Crimean people, about the infringement of the rights of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar population living in Crimea. We can congratulate the Ukrainian delegation in working out Western grants. Today they have coped with it successfully, ”added Anastasia Gridchina, head of the Ukrainian community of Crimea.

Earlier, on March 18, Elena Panina, a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs, said that bills condemning the ideology of the “Russian world” and criminal responsibility for its “propaganda” in Ukraine can be regarded as a cultural genocide of Russians.

Projects on condemnation of the ideology of the “Russian world”, as well as on the introduction of criminal liability for its “propaganda” on the eve were registered in the Verkhovna Rada. The authors of the initiatives were two deputies from the Servant of the People party Oleg Dunda and Alexander Aliksiychuk.

Panina is convinced that such legislative initiatives are “another symptom of Ukraine’s transformation into a nationalist totalitarian state, which is based on pathological Russophobia.”

The parliamentarian pointed out that such steps would be considered unacceptable in relation to Western cultural realities, however, Western European countries turn a blind eye to discrimination against Russian identity.
