Italian «friends of Putin» figured out how to make Western companies legal in Crimea


Chairman of the Board of the Yalta International Economic Forum Andrei Nazarov informed that the Italian businessmen, who had paid a visit to the annexed Crimea, proposed a mechanism to avoid sanctions.

“During the talks, they offered interesting mechanisms to circumvent sanctions, including registration in Switzerland that is not an EU Member,” said Nazarov.

As a reminder, representatives of some Regional Councils and businesses from Italy paid a three-day visit to Crimea. The delegation consisted of 18 representatives from five regions of Italy: Veneto, Liguria, Lombardy, Tuscany and Emilia Romagna. All of them are from the Lega Nord political party.

The visit was organized by the Yalta International Economic Forum and the “Government” of Crimea.
