The authority claims that Russia has the right to organize parades on its territory without the consent of foreign states. Judging by the statement, the Russian Federation considers the occupied Sevastopol its territory.
"And colleagues in Kyiv would be advised to get rid of illusions and get used to the idea that the Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol are an integral part of the Russian Federation. This choice was made by residents of Crimea in 2014," the message says.
As we reported before, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemned the holding of a naval parade of units of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in occupied Crimea. The ministry believes this is a violation of international law, numerous resolutions of the UN General Assembly, and Ukrainian legislation.
