Crimea Attracts Investment; 10,000 Kiev Miners on Strike for Unpaid Wages

More undeniable proofs of the cruelty of “Russian aggression” in Crimea and the “proper standards” exercised by the US installed democratic government in Kiev.

Already, hundreds of companies have shut down their operations in Eastern Ukraine and thousands of miners in the Western part of the country are on strike for unpaid wages and worsening conditions. These are the effects of the US led invasion of the country.

In striking contrast, the annexation of Crimea is gaining foreign investments from China, Turkey and even Israel?

Many foreign companies have already invested in the region’s development, including Turkish, Israeli, Chinese, and even western European firms, according to permanent representative of the Crimean Republic to the president of Russia Georgy Muradov.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — A free economic zone in Crimea, due to be launched in March, will attract new investment in the region, and businesses will be secure and profitable, permanent representative of the Crimean Republic to the president of Russia Georgy Muradov told Sputnik.

“Our president adopted the law, according to which Crimea will be a free economic zone. It gives an impulse to the business community to invest more and more resources into the development of Crimean Peninsula, and it will be very profitable business,” Muradov said.

Western Companies Interested in Investment in Crimea – Minister

Muradov added that many foreign companies have already invested in the region’s development, including Turkish, Israeli, Chinese, and even western European firms, despite the EU sanctions prohibiting them from doing business in Crimea due to Russia’s alleged involvement in the Ukrainian affairs.

“We have many investors – especially from Turkey, from China, from Israel, from even West European countries – which are coming to us, independently from the sanctions. They invest through other companies and have big profits working in Crimea,” Muradov said.

The official highlighted that Crimea, as part of Russia, participates in various international projects.

“There will be a big exhibition in Saudi Arabia in March. We shall take part in it. It will be a so-called ‘road show’… We also plan […] contacts with different business structures and corporations of China,” Muradov said.

After Crimea rejoined Russia following a March 2014 referendum, President Vladimir Putin signed a law on the establishment of a free economic zone in Crimea and the federal port city of Sevastopol.

Large investors will receive additional tax incentives, including duty-free import of goods and equipment.

Zakharchenko said that Ukraine was bringing back heavy weapons to the line of disengagement.

“Ukraine has not pulled back weapons. It is bringing them back. The pullout was a fake,” he said.

The militias are expecting more provocations by Ukraine’s volunteer battalions, “which have already said they are not obeying orders from Kiev,” he said.

In case the situation gets worse, Zakharchenko said, the Ukrainian forces may mount attacks in three directions – south, north-western and in the area of Debaltsevo to cut the Donetsk Republic away from the Luhansk Republic.

“The way I see the situation, I believe there will be three attacks,” Zakharchenko said. “The main group of the Ukrainian forces is concentrated in the areas of Volnovakha, Krasnogolovka, Artyomovsk, Kurakhovo and other communities.
