Oxford University Press indicated temporarily occupied Crimea as the territory of the Russian Federation in the geography textbook, the press service of the Embassy of Ukraine to the United Kingdom on its Facebook page.
“The textbook on geography published by The Oxford University Press - ELT misleads students.
Ukraine's Embassy urges the publishing house to correct mistakes immediately as such grave mistakes may bring The Oxford University Press into disrepute,” said in a statement.
As it was reported before, in the edition of socio-economic atlas of the world in 2016 of French publishing house Larousse the Crimea was depicted as a part of Russian Federation. Embassy of Ukraine in the French Republic required the French publishing house Larousse to correct the "shameful mistake”. With a formal letter to the publishing house addressed the Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to France Oleh Shamshur.
The internationally recognized Ukrainian territory of Crimea was illegally annexed by the Russian Federation in March 2014.
