Deputies of the German parliament - the Bundestag from the right party "Alternative for Germany" will visit the Crimea annexed by Russia, said the representative of this political force Markus Frohnmaier.

According to him, politicians will take part in the Yalta Economic Forum, organized by the Russian occupation authorities.

However, Frohnmaier notes that the trip and participation in the forum, which will be held on April 19-21, will be "private".

The Russians also invited Alexander Neu, a member of the Bundestag, representing the left forces in the parliament, but he and his faction said they did not intend to visit the Crimea.

Meanwhile, the organizers of the forum noted that a delegation of 50 politicians, experts from Germany and Austria, would arrive in the Crimea.

Earlier, on February 3 delegation consisting of three deputies from the right-populist party "Alternative for Germany" arrived in the occupied Crimea. Subsequently, the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea initiated a pre-trial investigation into the violation of the order to enter the temporarily occupied territory by the deputies of the Federal Republic of Germany.
