«During the meeting, foreign guests were interested in the achievements, problems of the republic and the moods of its residents. In particular, foreign parliamentarians worried about the legal status of the Crimea in the Russian Federation, the representation of the Crimean Tatars in power, manifestations of Islamic radicalism among the youth and the construction of a transport crossing through the Kerch Strait," the statement says.

Earlier, Marat Amankulov stated about private nature of the trip to the Crimea. And the Ukrainian Ambassador to Kyrgyzstan, Mykola Doroshenko, commented on Facebook the explanation of the member of SDPK faction on this matter. The Embassy itself strongly condemned this visit, urging the Kyrgyz authorities to respect the territorial integrity of the Ukrainian state.
