IISS calls Sevastopol Russian city

Ukraine’s Embassy in the UK has expressed outrage to the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) for calling Sevastopol a Russian city.

“We’re extremely disappointed with the latest number of IISS ‘Survival’ journal, where Sevastopol is mentioned as Russian territory. We remind that Russia annexed Crimea in 2014. We expect IISS to remove the wrongful image and display correct information,” the embassy wrote on its Twitter account.

Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko criticized Apple for designating Crimea as Russian territory in its apps.

  1. It doesn’t matter if they call Crimea part of Russia or not. The countries that matter all say Crimea is Ukrainian.
