The militarization of the occupied Crimea is dangerous for Europe. This was stated by Ministry of Foreign Affairs International Security Department Director Serhiy Shutenko during a panel discussion of the first committee of the UN General Assembly, reports the MFA press service.

Shutenko noted that Russia turned the Ukrainian peninsula into a military base with modern weapons that could threaten not only the countries of the Black Sea region, but also Europe.

"Russia's policy of provocations in Crimea, including plans to place nuclear weapons there, requires consolidated response of the international community", the representative of the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said.

Russia also uses the Crimea as a logistical base for the continuation of the military campaign in Syria, stressed Shutenko.

Representatives from more than 50 countries-members of the UN condemned the occupation of the Crimea, and confirmed their support for the territorial integrity of Ukraine.
