Russia will not hold negotiations on Crimea, stated Russian Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergei Lavrov to “TASS”.

“We have nothing to return and we are not negotiating the matter of Crimea. It is part of the Russian Federation, which has been voiced out by the people living there”, - stressed Lavrov.

Earlier the Minister of Finance of Ukraine Natalia Yaresko, suggested renegotiating the status of Crimea. As a response to this suggestion press secretary of the Russian President Lmitriy Peskov said that there is no issue of Crimea, therefore there is nothing to renegotiate.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko claimed that Ukraine is going to file a claim into the international court in relation to the annexation of Crimea. He also initiated the creation of deoccupation service in Crimea.
