Russia annexed Crimea in March 2014, invading the Ukrainian peninsula and holding the illegal referendum; based on its trumped-up results, the Russian Parliament decided to approve the "reunification" of Crimea with mainland Russia. Ukraine, in turn, defined February 20, 2014, as the beginning of the occupation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. Western governments and organizations NGOs do not recognize the act of annexation of the Ukrainian peninsula.

As we reported, German Chancellor Angela Merkel will come to Kyiv on August 22 to meet with president of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky. Merkel plans to discuss Donbas and reforms in Ukraine during the meeting with Zelensky.
