German companies Volkswagen and Adidas have officially denied the accusations of Ukraine’s foreign minister Pavlo Klimkin who earlier claimed their retailers work in the occupied Crimea.

DW quoted the press services of the two companies. ‘Volkswagen brands stay committed to the sanctions and obey the decisions. Other evaluations are a surprise to us,’ German machinery concern said.

Adidas, in turn, said they hold on to the acting law.

During the visit of his German counterpart Sigmar Gabriel, Pavlo Klimkin said that ‘there are companies such as Volkswagen and Adidas, which allow their retailers to consider Crimea a part of Russia’.
