The British sportsman Gary Hunt took part in the cliff diving competition organized by Russia in Crimea. It took place on August 25 in Simeiz.
The Embassy expressed the disappointment that some British citizens neglected the official attitude not only of Ukraine but also the United Kingdom. The Embassy reminded about the official recommendation of the British Government. According to it, the citizens are warned about the illegality of the entry to the internationally recognized Ukrainian territory through the checkpoints that are not under control of Ukraine.
The Embassy warned the British citizens to abstain from visiting occupied Crimea without the official permit of Ukraine.
According to RIA News, the British cliff-diver Gary Hunt won in the competitions.
‘Last year I wanted to come but could not. But I am ready to come here again and again after today’s success. We will try to show the best results. Sport is out of policy and the sanctions do not disturb me’, the edition cited the British sportsman.
He added that he realizes the further impossibility of the participation in the Ukrainian competitions.
