Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has sent an official note of protest to Russia regarding Russia’s PM Dmitriy Medvedev’s visit to Russian-occupied Crimea, the Ministry’s message reads.

The Ministry noted, that Medvedev’s visit to Crimea, which is an internationally recognized territory of Ukraine, is ‘an outrageous neglect of Ukraine’s sovereignty, violation of the UN Charter, as well as principles and norms of international law by the Russian Federation’.

‘Responsibility for these and other violations is placed on the Russian Federation as an occupant-state in accordance with norms of international law, on its authorities, as well as on illegal ‘Crimean authorites’, making unlawful decision and resorting to unlawful actions’, - the Ministry added.

On May 22, Dmitriy Medvedev arrived in Russian-occupied Sevastopol and visited Feodosiya on May 23. According to the program of his visit, today he will hold a speech at the plenary meeting of ‘Yedinaya Rossiya’ (‘United Russia’) in Yalta.
