The State Duma instructed to check the sale of children’s photo wallpapers with Crimea as part of Ukraine

State Duma Chairman Vyacheslav Volodin instructed to verify the sale of children’s photo wallpapers, where Crimea is depicted as part of Ukraine. On Friday, July 29, Izvestia was told in the press service of the lower house.

“Speaker of the State Duma Vyacheslav Volodin was approached by residents of Moscow, who discovered when buying photo wallpapers with a children’s world map in the Leroy Merlin store (French company Leroy Merlin – Ed.) An image of the territory of Crimea as part of Ukraine. This map also did not include independent South Ossetia, Abkhazia, the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics,” the State Duma reported.

In this regard, the speaker of the lower house of the parliament of the Russian Federation instructed the security committee to send a request to the regulatory authorities to check the network of stores where such products are replicated, as well as to take prompt response measures.

In his opinion, this is an example of the use by a NATO country through a company registered in it of any opportunity to advance its agenda on the territory of Russia.

“We need to fight this,” Volodin stressed.

In December last year, MEP from France Thierry Mariani said that Crimea cannot be called an occupied territory, since the majority of residents were in favor of joining Russia. According to him, the absence of a wave of Crimean migrants to Ukraine also indicates the legal inclusion of the peninsula into the Russian Federation, as often happens during the military seizure of the territory.

Crimea returned to the Russian Federation following the results of the 2014 referendum. 96.77% of the inhabitants of the region and 95.6% of the voters of Sevastopol voted for joining. The procedure was carried out in accordance with international law. Meanwhile, Kyiv considers the peninsula its temporarily occupied territory. Moscow has repeatedly stated that the issue of ownership of the subject is closed forever.
