    Crimea has plans to open its representative office in Germany, Crimea's Deputy Prime Minister Georgy Muradov said Tuesday.

    SIMFEROPOL (Sputnik) — Muradov noted that the initiative to open the Crimean representative office in Germany came from local politicians and public.

    "It must be a tourist and information center created on a voluntary basis, and in this case it should be a German citizen who will provide information on Crimea. We are able to implement that idea," Muradov, who is also Crimea's permanent representative with the Russian president, said at a press conference in Moscow.

    In March 2014, Crimea decided to secede from Ukraine and rejoin Russia after more than 96 percent of the local electorate who voted in a referendum on the issue backed the move. Kiev has not recognized the public vote, claiming that the territory was annexed.
