American teacher calls visit to Crimea a real discovery

Members of foreign delegations who regularly visit Crimea do not cease to be surprised how the situation on the peninsula differs from that described by Western media.

For a professor of medical biology from the USA, Michael Luis Watts, who arrived in Crimea in a group of a foreign delegation, which included 22 people from Norway, Holland, the USA, Germany, the trip was a revelation.

During a meeting with the head of the Crimean parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov, the American said that the peninsula is not a militarized zone, as they say in the West.

According to him, wherever the delegation visited, its members saw normal life, and the stories of Western media, including the American ones, that Russia annexed the peninsula after the Crimean spring and falsified the results of the referendum, are untrue.

An international delegation arrived on the peninsula in order to strengthen ties through international diplomacy and will remain in Crimea until October 6.

The delegation’s program includes meetings with the administration of the peninsula, visits to a number of institutions, memorial places of Crimea, meetings with local residents, students of the Crimean Federal University, as well as visits to the Artek International Children's Center.

    If you really hear about Crimea exclusively the official Western media, then in your head a picture is really drawn of something like a huge concentration camp Auschwitz, no more, no less. Therefore, the surprise of foreigners upon arrival on the peninsula is most likely absolutely sincere and justified.

      Some foreign citizens, arriving in Russia, are convinced that there are no drunken bears with balalaikas on the streets of Russian cities, and in some places Russia is more beautiful than Switzerland, and in architectural terms it is completely pleasing to the eye. Locals do not pester tourists, and special services do not grab citizens on the streets ...

        ... well, about drunk bears, etc. - this is a fact, no one really thinks for himself, it is rather a humorous cliche. But about the "occupied Crimea with a suffering population" in the West they broadcast regularly, and only in that vein. Therefore, the picture of the layman was creepy, they recall films about the Second World War, etc., since it is with this, in Europe, for example, that the word occupation is associated ...

    Crimea was voluntarily attached to the deputy, and the monument to the military.

    That is why foreigners are glad for the truth-womb ...

      Volunteering was provided by the SOLDIER, therefore a monument to him. Without it - think what would happen to the Crimeans - multiply the Donbass by at least 10!
