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.
