"A delegation consists of 20 people. It includes politicians, acting lawmakers, public figures, entrepreneurs. As for the businesspeople, I can tell that two of them [are] Germans, but they live in Norway. One [of them] is engaged in business, related to construction of bridges, and the other one — to construction of roads. Another entrepreneur from Germany is engaged in the supply of agricultural machinery," Gempel told RIA Novosti.
He also noted that the delegation is visiting the peninsula within the framework of people's diplomacy project and will stay there until October 28.
Crimea, which has a predominately ethnically-Russian population, seceded from Ukraine to rejoin Russia in March 2014, following a referendum in which over 96 percent of voters supported the move.
The Ukrainian government and many Western nations refused to recognize the legality of the Crimea referendum and have introduced sanctions against the region and Russia.
