As we reported The New York Times newspaper published a map that depicts Crimea as disputed territory. It was published in the article ‘Putin’s bridge to Crimea may carry more symbolism then traffic’. The New York Times also cited Ekaterina Shulman, the political expert of the Academy of the Russian president who claims that the building of the bridge that unites Russian and the annexed peninsula is symbolical.

Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanded from American newspaper to correct the status of the peninsula to ‘temporary occupied’. However, the NYT claimed that it will not change the map. Later, the newspaper added that it does not accept Russia’s position on the status of Crimea.
