The head of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov has called the new US sanctions the result of false and hypocritical policy and invited the Americans to visit the Peninsula, in order to debunk propaganda myths.

The special envoy of the US state Department in Ukraine Kurt Volker said that the United States imposed sanctions against three individuals and nine organizations in connection with the annexation of Crimea and the situation in the Donbass. Among the nine organizations that came under sanctions, — the sanatorium «AI-Petri», «Dulber» and «Mishor» in Crimea and «South project» owned by Bank «Russia» Yuri Kovalchuk, which at the end of 2017 bought at auction 100% of the shares of the Crimean factory of sparkling wines «New world».

«The development of our Republic is not affected. We live under sanctions from 2014, and during this time the Russian Crimea do more than for almost a quarter century of life without the sanction of a part of Ukraine. Moreover, the hit to the sanctions lists are additional advertising for our media placement… to debunk propaganda myths simply to visit Crimea and talk to the inhabitants of the Peninsula. So we invite Americans to visit. Come, see and draw conclusions. Notice that this year our Peninsula was visited by tourists from 132 countries», — wrote Aksenov on his page in Facebook.

Thus, according to him, the fact that sanctions do not work, does not negate the essence and goals of the sanctions policy.

«On the one hand, it is the discrimination of Crimeans applying the maximum damage to the population of the Peninsula. In fact, this logic of war, whereby to cause harm to the enemy of all good. These actions further strengthen our confidence in the correctness of the choice made in 2014 is that, if not for the intervention of Russia, our region would wait for the fate of Donbass», — said Aksenov.

On the other hand, he said, is an attempt to exert psychological pressure on those citizens of Western countries who do not trust the propaganda and going to visit the Crimea.

«And, of course, is a Prime example of false and hypocritical policy when the state coup in Kiev, perfect with the support of the crowd of several dozen thousand people, is declared to be a model of democracy and free choice of the two million Crimeans and Sevastopol – «annexation» and «occupation» — said the head of the Republic.
