July 8, 2020

The German Embassy in Ukraine recalled that it would never recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea, and the visit of German MPs to the territory of the occupied peninsula was a private trip. This was reported via the department’s Twitter page.

“Unfortunately, we learned that German MPs also took part in the visit. We also want to emphasize: it was a private trip. The position of the Federal Government remains unshakable. We do not recognize the annexation of Crimea, which violates international law”,- the statement said.

We remind that earlier the delegation of the French deputies of the European Parliament also made a private visit to the occupied Crimea, where they visited polling stations in Yalta and Simferopol.
