Sevastopol City, occupied Crimea, was identified as the territory of the Russian Federation in the certificate of Guinness World Records presented to the citizen of Belarus in annexed Crimea, as Hromadske reported citing the official website of the reference book.
Thus, Alexander Bendikov, who is the citizen of Belarus, has established the world record on the balancing of items in Sevastopol. He held 349 nails on the one nail. This achievement was processed and signed by the local masters of sport on handball and volleyball.
It is noted that the record was established in May but it was spotted recently. Sevastopol, Russian Federation was identified as the place where the record was established. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has not commented on this incident yet.
As we reported The New York Times newspaper published a map that depicts Crimea as disputed territory. It was published in the article that ‘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.
