Pompeo says US will never recognize Russia’s seizure of Crimea
On the anniversary of the annexation of the Crimean Peninsula by Russia, the US Secretary of State said that for America Crimea is Ukraine
The United States will never recognize Russian claims to treat Ukrainian Crimea as Russia’s sovereign territory, and has called on Moscow to end its occupation of the peninsula. This was stated by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in an address that was published by the Department of State on February 27, on the sixth anniversary of Russia’s annexation of the Crimean Peninsula..
“The Russian occupation of Crimea and the increasing militarization of the peninsula are a threat to our common security. The Russian occupation authorities continue to violate human rights and fundamental freedoms, brutally suppressing critics from civil society, the media and restricting freedom of religion, ”said Mike Pompeo.
The Secretary of State said the US is calling on Russia to release all Ukrainians illegally imprisoned for their peaceful protest and to end violations of fundamental civil liberties in Crimea.
“For six years, Russia continues to rely on lies and disinformation in its failed attempt to legitimize lawlessness. Her efforts are doomed to failure. The world will never forget Russia’s gratuitous invasion of Ukraine. The United States condemns Russia’s illegal actions in Crimea and ongoing aggressive actions against Ukraine, including in the Donbas, and will support sanctions against Russia until it returns control of Crimea to Ukraine and fully fulfills its obligations under the Minsk Agreements. “- said in a statement Pompeo.
