Ukrainian Foreign Affairs Ministry filed a note of protest to the Russian Federation due to Shoygu arrival to Crimea. MFA press service reports this.

“Ukraine’s Foreign Affairs Ministry voices its protest with the visit of Russia Defense Minister Sergey Shoygu to the occupied Crimea on June 16. This was an uncoordinated by Ukrainian side action, so it is an illegal invasion to Ukraine’s territories, which include Crimea and Sevastopol”, reads the message.

Ukrainian side is sure that Sergey Shoygu’s arrival to Crimea is the downright disregard of Ukraine’s territorial integrity and sovereignty by Russian authorities. By that visit they flaunt the UN Charter and the norms of international law and show that they ignore their international obligations.

Recall that Russia Defense Minister arrived to occupied Crimea on June 16 to discuss the construsting of military units on the peninsula.
