The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine (MFA) expressed strong protest against another uncoordinated with the Ukrainian side visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to annexed Crimea on August 10. This was reported by the press service of the state body.
"This visit of the temporarily occupied region of Ukraine by Russsian high officials are uncoordinated with the Ukrainian side, as well as the previous one, and are rude violations of the state sovereignty and territorial integrity of our country," reads the statement.
The MFA also believes that attempts of the Russian side and media to interpret such visits of the Russian Federation officials are "miserable."
"Any trips of Russian officials cannot change the status of these territories set by the Constitution and Laws of Ukraine but show regular neglect the common principles and rules of international law by the Russian Federation," the Ministry added.
