More than a dozen MEPs sent letters to the office of the American company Apple demanding to correct incorrect information about Crimea, which was indicated in the Apple Maps and Weather applications as the territory of the Russian Federation. Representative of Ukraine to the EU, Ambassador to Belgium and Luxembourg Mykola Tochitsky announced on Twitter.
“Our message is clear: no country can stand above the international rule of law, therefore it is alarming that private companies such as Apple are ready to undermine these laws in order to maintain consumer relations with the Russian Federation,” the European MPs said in a letter to the company.
According to the ambassador, the head of the Friends of European Ukraine group in the European Parliament, parliamentarian from Lithuania Petras Austrevichus, initiated appeals to Apple. On the first day of the campaign on December 7, about 15 members of the European Parliament sent letters to the American company about Crimea.
As we reported, "Apple" recognized the annexed Crimea as Russian and indicated it in the “Weather” program
