Earlier, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that he was ready to recognize the annexed Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation.

Meanwhile, Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the words of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on the return of the Russian-occupied Crimea, said that this is nothing more than a "statement of territorial claims" to the Russian Federation.

“Of course, the statement about the return of Crimea is currently nothing more than a statement about territorial claims to the Russian Federation. Such statements may have negative consequences,” Peskov said.
