Illegal Visits of Foreign Citizens to the Territory of the Occupied Crimea in Ferbruary-May 2018 — the Monitoring Results


by Daniil KHMELNIK, BlackSeaNews

Translated by Tetyana Puchkova

All in all, between February and May 2018, we have identified 231 foreigners who have illegally visited the occupied Crimea.

The number of the foreigner visits to the occupied Crimea in February-May 2018.

During that time, most of the visitors to the occupied peninsula were German citizens. Over the four months, we have identified 30 Germans who illegally visited Crimea.

The peninsula was most popular among the members of the German right-wing populist party Alternative for Germany (AdG). In February, the so-called. «delegation» of eight AdG representatives in the land parliaments arrived to Crimea. Despite all the hoopla the visit caused in the Kremlin mass media, in truth, it had a largely private nature and was partially paid for by the host country — the German national cultural autonomy in the occupied Crimea. In Germany itself, the initiative of these local politicians provoked outrage not only from the federal government, but also from the AdG leadership itself.

In March, members of the same German party were noticed in Crimea again, this time, as "international observers" in the illegal Russian presidential elections there. The AdG representatives also didn’t miss the Yalta International Economic Forum in April. 

Two German citizens of the Russian origin,  Nellie Schultz and Nikolai Uryvsky, deserve special attention. For Uryvsky, who calls himself a representative of a certain Eurasian Society, that was not the first visit to the occupied Crimea. For instance, he was a participant of the 2017 Yalta IV «Peace Forum.» In March 2018, Uryski and Schultz brought to Crimea a group of 17 German schoolchildren to participate in the «Russian-German Children's Diplomacy Day»  within the framework of the «Academy of Children's Diplomacy.» This project was started by the German national-cultural autonomy in Yalta in September 2016 in cooperation with School No. 1. As reported by the Crimean media, «the project has launched the School of Young People's Diplomats, held the language clubs season and established communication and friendly connections with Germany’s public organizations.»

In May, although that time a certain Andreas Kozak was named the group leader, Uryvsky brought to the Crimea another group «people's diplomats» with the customary assurances of eternal friendship and abstract promises of cooperation in all areas.

One more group of German citizens who visited the occupied Crimea consisted of the members of the Ludwigsburg-Yevpatoria Friendship Society and musicians of the Ludwigsburg symphony orchestra. In Yevpatoria, Ludwigsburg’s sister city, the German musicians conducted a symphonic music concert.

But the record in the number of visits to the occupied Crimea over the period of the BSNews monitoring certainly belongs to Germany’s Andreas Maurer. This scandalous Head of the Left (Die Linke) faction in the Quakenbrück City Council came to the peninsula in August 2017 as part of the «German delegation», in October of the same year — as part of the «Norwegian delegation», in November he was a member of the «Friends of Crimea Forum», in March 2018 — an «international observer» in the illegal presidential elections in the occupied Crimea and in April he could not miss the «Yalta International Economic Forum».

Among foreigners who have been frequenting Crimea is also Mr. Weber from Norway, who, just like Uryvsky, has been promoting the «people's diplomacy». They are not the first time to come to the occupied Crimea - the «Norwegian delegation» in October 2017, Putin's election in Crimea in March 2018, «Yalta International Economic Forum» in April.

In May 2018 the occupied peninsula was visited by another colorful character — Maria Romanova, a permanent resident of  Spain who calls herself a «Grand Duchess» and «the Head of the Russian Imperial House» and her son Georgi Romanov — «His Imperial Highness the Sovereign Heir Crown Prince». Not surprisingly, far from all the descendants of the Romanovs agree with such positioning... Nevertheless, Maria Romanova is deeply loved by the Russian media for her generous promises that the West will recognize the legitimacy of the Crimean occupation and for her advocacy of the matter. However, by now, even the fanatic adherents of the «Russian world» start raising public doubts in these promises. For example, the former «Prosecutor General» of the occupied Crimea, Natalia Poklonskaya, who in 2014 received the «St. Anastasia Female Imperial Medal» from Maria Romanova's hands in commemoration of the Crimea aссession to Russia,  has later called Maria and Georgy Romanov «traveling salesmen with fuzzy goals» and «the sons of lieutenant Schmidt» — a reference to the unsophisticated scam artists from the popular Soviet novel The Golden Calf — and their visit to the Crimea «self-promotion», the opinion that has cost Natalia the medal…

Georgi and Maria Romanov on June 1, 2018, the day of the tourist season start in Feodosia.

Another frequent guest in Crimea is the Italian Stefano Valdeghamberi, a deputy of the regional parliament of the Veneto region. Under his belt he already has the above-mentioned Friends of Crimea Forum, the presidential elections and the Yalta International Economic Forum.

Overall, we have identified 21 persons from Italy, which in the number of citizens who visited the occupied Crimea makes it second only to Germany.

Four Italian citizens visited the agrarian forum AgroExpoCrime in Yalta in February as representatives of the agro-industrial complex of the Italian region Veneto (Venice). And, of course, despite the fact that the visit was supposedly business-like, both the guests and the occupants kept emphasizing that «the Italian region of Veneto «was the first to demand the recognition of the Crimean referendum by the Italian authorities». As reported by Russian media, that was the «delegation’s» second visit to the Yalta forum.

Another Italian «delegation» of two people visited Yalta. For one of them, Rinaldo Vincentini, it is the third trip to the occupied peninsula.

In May, a group of Italian citizens visited the Mount Gasfort memorial to the Sardinian kingdom soldiers who fell at the first Siege of Sevastopol in 1854-1855. The memorial stands on the site of the Crimean War Italian military cemetery destroyed in the World War II. The Italians planned to restore the military cemetery on Gasfort, lay out a park there and erect a monument to the Russian-Italian friendship. However, the later was not meant to be, as the event had not been coordinated with the Sevastopol’s «government». So, the Italians and the «deputies» of the Sevastopol «Legislative Assembly» just laid flowers at the memorial.

The next most numerous group came from Syria and mostly consisted of YIEF-2018 participants — 81 people, of which we have recognized 14. The group included businessmen, journalists and members of the current government. The occupants proudly claim more than 3,200 forum participants from 70 countries. In 2018, the forum focused on Syria and the African countries. The invaders have openly stated that they «specifically welcomed the participation of the small countries representatives in the YIEF. The reason is that the UN General Assembly has «adopted anti-Russia and anti-Crimea resolutions, but the small countries were neutral». Africa was represented by various public figures and politicians from Benin, Congo, Zimbabwe, Chad, Eritrea and South Africa.

According to the official announcement, the forum had resulted in over 100 contracts and agreements with a total worth of more than 160 billion rubles. The outcomes seem even more impressive than in 2017, when more than 30 contracts and agreements totaling 100 billion rubles had been claimed. However, a year later, only three of those have made it to the implementation stage…

Other Syrian visitors were crew members of the ships that despite the sanctions regime, called at the ports of Crimea. They were identified thanks to the PSB-News investigation.

Besides the YIEF, the IVth media forum Journalists of Muslim Countries for Partnership Between Civilizations, was also held in Yalta that same month. According to the invaders, 60 journalists from Russia, Albania, Bangladesh, Egypt, Iraq, Iran, Kazakhstan, Kuwait, Algeria, Saudi Arabia, Sudan, Syria, Lebanon, Turkey, Uzbekistan, Indonesia, the United Arab Emirates, Jordan and Morocco took part in it. We have managed to identify 18 of those.

A group of 13 young people, mostly students, arrived to the occupied Crimea in March as part of the forum Russia — a Country of Opportunities, held in Moscow on March 13-16. The forum participants also visited the Sevastopol polling stations of the illegal in Crimea presidential elections.

The mayor and vice-mayor of the French city Marignane came to Yevpatoria to establish the sister-city ties. In the agreement, the twin-city relations have been delicately called the «inter-municipal cooperation». At the same time, the French Foreign Ministry declared the agreement a violation of the international law. «Our position is clear: the signing of the agreement of the Marignane municipality does not reflect the position of the French government. Also, the participation of French elected officials in the ceremony is their personal initiative that we regret», stated the representative of the French Foreign Ministry.

Another «delegation» worth mentioning is that of six Czech citizens, including Senate deputy Jaroslav Doubrava, Parliament deputy Zdeněk Ondráček, deputy chairman of the Communist Party Josef Skala, chairman of the Czech Union of Fighters for Freedom Jaroslav Vodička, activist Elena Vichanova and publicist Zharko Jovanovic. The reason these figures aren’t yet in our list is because the photos of the senator surrounded by the Russian military men signed «Visit to Crimea» were taken in... Volgograd, Russia…
