We got used to the fact of the ostrich behavior of Russian diplomacy - MFA

30 July 2020

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine said that they got used to the fact of the ostrich behavior of Russian diplomacy, commenting on the return without considering a note of protest on the military parade held in the occupied Crimea on the Day of the Russian Navy. This was reported by the Ukrinform media agency.

“We are not surprised by the fact that the Russian Foreign Ministry has returned a note of protest to Ukraine in connection with the so-called naval parade held in temporarily occupied Sevastopol on July 26, 2020 with a proposal to Ukraine to get rid of illusions and get used to the fact that Crimea and Sevastopol are an integral part of Russia”,- claims the commentary of the Foreign Ministry.

The Foreign Ministry noted that “they got used to the fact of the ostrich behavior of Russian diplomacy - to return the document as if it never happened.” However, this behavior of Russia does not harm the official recording of the next offense.

We remind that on July 24, a naval parade of units of the Black Sea Fleet of the Russian Federation was held in the occupied Crimea on the occasion of the Day of the Russian Navy. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemned such actions and sent the corresponding note of protest to the Russian department, but the Russian Federation returned it without consideration.
