"We are grateful to the Security Council that unconditionally and without question confirmed the strong position regarding respect for the territorial integrity and independence of Ukraine, including Crimea, and only one country expressed an opposite position", he said.

"Where is the proof of their allegations concerning the events in relation to the so-called attempts of terrorist attacks against the Ukrainian Crimea? If it really took place, there would be photos, and videos. Those are no more than words", Yelchenko said.
