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.
