Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called the statements of Bulgarian President Rumen Radev about the allegedly "Russian" Crimea a blow to bilateral relations. Minister wrote about this on his Twitter.

“With his rash sayings, he (the President of Bulgaria - ed.) dealt a blow to the friendly Ukrainian-Bulgarian relations, exposed Bulgaria to EU criticism and played along with Russian propaganda,” the minister wrote.

On November 19, during a debate with his opponent in the presidential election, Radev said that Crimea at the moment allegedly belongs to Russia and the sanctions against Moscow are ineffective. Then, in connection with the statement of the Bulgarian president, the ambassador was summoned to the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry.

Earlier the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Belarus Vladimir Makei called the occupied Crimea "Russian territory". Also earlier, President of Belarus Alexander Lukashenko said that he was ready to recognize the occupied Ukrainian peninsula of Crimea as part of the Russian Federation.
