The head of the State Duma Committee on Foreign Affairs Alexei Pushkov said that after talks in Paris, German Chancellor Angela Merkel admitted that Crimea would forever remain as Russian region.


Moreover, Pushkov said that according to the chancellor, the conflict in Ukraine was limited only by military actions of Kiev against their citizens living in the Donbass, and disagree with a coup d’etat carried out previous year with the violent change of government.


Recall that the meeting of the Presidents of Russia, France, Ukraine and the German chancellor was held on Friday at the Elysee Palace. After the meeting, Merkel said that Ukraine expects to resolve the territorial crisis in the country, but «it does not concern the Crimea until it comes to rest of the country».
