Foreign Ministry Invites Serbia's Ambassador For Explanations About Serbian Politicians' Visit To Crimea

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has invited Serbia's Ambassador to Ukraine Rade Bulatovic to receive explanations about the visit of some Serbian politicians to the Russia-annexed Crimea.

Spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Mariana Betsa announced this at a news briefing, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

"The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has invited the Ambassador of Serbia to Ukraine for explanations on the issue," she said.

She says the Serbian politicians demonstratively violated the Ukrainian legislation, the international law, the resolution of the UN General Assembly of 2014 by visiting the Russia-annexed Crimea. Moreover, they opened called for recognizing Crimea the territory of the Russian Federation.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine condemns the visit of the Serbian parliamentarians to the occupied Crimea and assesses this gesture as disrespect of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.

Spokesperson of the Foreign Affairs Ministry Betsa notes that the Ukrainian legislation foresees criminal responsibility for such actions.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, in February 2017, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine invited German Ambassador to Ukraine Ernst Reichel following his statements that elections in Luhansk and Donetsk regions can be held in presence of Russian troops.
