As we reported earlier, the Russian ambassador invited the U.S. representatives of the American administration to visit the occupied Crimea.
“We drew attention to another reality-challenging statement made by U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo concerning Crimea. We would like to note that American authorities over the past six years have not still bothered to visit the peninsula and see the real state of affairs with their own eyes. On our part, we are ready to welcome official delegations comprised of administration representatives in the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol,” the message said.
