The head of the Republic stressed that the reunification of the Crimea with Russia is a national victory.
"These events have changed the course of history, both domestic and world, they have become symbols of our freedom and unity, symbols of the revival of Russia as a great world power. The March 2014 referendum was the people’s response to the coup d'état in Kiev, to the lawlessness and the threat to freedom, to the attempts of the criminal Ukrainian regime and its accomplices to bring war to our land. The peoples of the Crimea have exercised their legitimate right to self-determination as stipulated by the UN Charter. This is a unique example of effective and legally flawless application of the norms of direct democracy,” said the head of the Republic. "The Crimeans showed to the whole world that the people united by the common idea, the consciousness of their rightness and the will to win, can take their fate into their own hands and change the course of the historical process. That the creator of history is the people, not the self-styled "world elites", not the secret behind-the-scenes forces and manipulators, imposing upon the masses some false meanings and cardboard heroes under the sauce of "democracy."
He added that the Crimean spring gave impetus to a huge patriotic uplift in the whole country. The Crimean consensus united dozens of millions of people of different nationalities and generations and became a significant factor in social and political life.
“This is exactly what the new-found contenders for world domination cannot forgive us. It is for our independence and love of freedom that they are trying to punish us with sanctions, to intimidate and to isolate us. But this leads to the opposite results. Overcoming difficulties and obstacles, we become stronger. We are again and again convinced of the correctness of the choice we made five years ago, we are working, building a new Russian Crimea", stressed Sergey Aksenov.
According to the head of the Republic, the success of the Russian Crimea is a presentation of the possibilities of the Russian world as an integration project and "the best response to our enemies".
