SIMFEROPOL (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 14th August, 2019) Attempts of Ukrainian authorities to impose the maritime blockade on Crimea are doomed to fail, first deputy speaker of the Crimean parliament Efim Fiks told Sputnik Wednesday.
Crimea's reunification with Russia was officially declared in March 2014 after almost 97 percent of those who voted in a regional referendum chose to reunite with Russia. Ukraine, the United States, the European Union and their allies do not recognize the referendum, while Russia maintains that the procedure was legal and democratic.
