“Of course, in the long-term perspective, it’s the goal of all Western states. We never recognized the illegal annexation of the Baltic States – Lithuania, Latvia and Estonia – by the USSR. Likewise, we will never recognize Crimea’s annexation by Russia. However, I will also advise to not make it the urgent priority. Yes, it’s on the agenda, and so it will remain. But as of now, one has to focus on other issues like reforms, full implementation of Minks agreements and so on”, Rasmussen said.
