Following a July visit by French parliamentarians to Crimea, a growing number of EU lawmakers have voiced plans to visit the peninsula, in defiance of EU decree and political prohibition.

MOSCOW (Sputnik), Daria Chernyshova — Polish lawmakers may visit Crimea after the October 25 parliamentary election in the country, member of the European Parliament Janusz Korwin-Mikke told Sputnik on Friday.

"I would like to go but not before the elections, after October 25th. I am very interested, but I don’t have an invitation," Korwin-Mikke said.

After the reunification of Crimea with Russia in March 2014, Russia's relations with the West deteriorated. The move sparked international controversy, with Kiev and a number of Western states labeling the process an "annexation" and refusing to recognize a referendum in which 96 percent of Crimeans had voted in favor of seceding from Ukraine and rejoining Russia.
