  1. The United States will never recognize Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea and urges to immediately return full control of Crimea to Ukraine.
    U.S. Chargé d’Affaires in Ukraine Kristina Kvien said this in a video address on the occasion of the 76th anniversary of the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people.
    “Today we solemnly remember the starting of Soviet deportations of Crimean Tatars, which caused unimaginable traumas, suffering and deaths of many thousands… That trauma and sufferings only deepen by Russia’s modern day occupation of Crimea. The United States does not and will not recognize Russia’s purported annexation of Crimea. Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control of the Crimean peninsula to Ukraine,” Kvien said.

    She assured that U.S. commitment to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity is unshakable.

    “We call on Russia to stop inflicting suffering to the people of Crimea, end conscription there and immediately return full control of Crimea to Ukraine. We stand with Ukraine and reaffirm that Crimea is Ukraine,” the diplomat stressed.

    May 18, Ukraine honors the victims of deportation of the Crimean Tatar people and marks the Day of Struggle for the Rights of the Crimean Tatar People. The deportation of the Crimean Tatars began at 03:00 on May 18, 1944 and lasted until the beginning of June.

  2. These fine words only appear on an obscure site and an obscure YouTube channel, when they need to be uttered by the president. Repeatedly.

  3. Had some wanker vatniki st,Petes troll on quora trying to convince people that Ukraine only got Crimea because Krushchev was from Ukraine.

    Ever the fact checker, I googled him, unless the Borders were changed (doubtful) he was born close to the Border, but inside the shithole.
