«It’s a helpless signal to the Ukrainian authorities. Ukraine simply has nothing to say in response to the success of the economic forum in Crimea. I have not found information that in Ukraine held a forum of this scale, so they’re just jealous that Crimea for four years has been in a difficult situation related to the sanctions, to organize a forum which becomes a platform for addressing issues of business, politics, youth», — told RIA Novosti Maurer.

According to him, the forum became a real platform of meetings, including for Europeans.

«The forum helps even us, Europeans, to meet and talk among themselves. The members of our delegation — some businesses have extended the stay in the Crimea, because it is already conducted business negotiations. There are specific projects,» said Maurer.

The politician noted that in Ukraine initiated a criminal case will have no consequences for foreign participants.

I personally am in Crimea for the ninth time,» said Maurer.
