Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius criticized Apple’s excuse for the “controversial borders” of annexed Crimea and called for not manipulating international law for economic advantage. Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevicius wrote about this on Twitter.
"There are no "disputed borders" when it comes to Crimea. Apple, there is only a piece of land that is occupied by Russia, bypassing all the principles of international law, and this piece of land belongs to Ukraine. You can’t manipulate the language of international law to get an economic advantage," the message says.

Apple recognized the annexed Crimea as Russian territory, and indicated it so in the Weather app. It was reported in the view of the results of a meeting between the Chairman of the State Duma's Committee on security and counteraction of corruption Vasily Piskaryov and the representative of Apple in Russia Daria Ermolina, RIA Novosti reports.

Such changes to the program were called "debugging".

"The work went on in stages ... Today they (Apple, - 112 International) reported that all the errors were eliminated," Vasily Piskaryov said.
