The President of Ukraine commented on the US declaration on the Crimea


I welcome Washington’s historic statement on the non-recognition of an attempt by the Russian aggressor to annex the Ukrainian Crimea.

It is a decent response to Kremlin’s hybrid provocations after Helsinki meeting.
I sencerely grateful to the Presidential Administration of Donald J. Trump for the uncompromising position to support the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognised borders.

Crimea belongs to Ukraine and it is not negotiable – it wasn’t, isn’t and can’t be compromised.

I am convinced that above mentioned statement by the US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo will finally deprive Kremlin of its imperial illusions.

Regardless of the passage of time, armed occupation and illigal annexation of a part of a sovereign state will only end in one way – with the liberation of the occupied territory, restoration of territorial integrity and compensation of all damage caused by the aggressor.

We call on all sincere friends and partners of Ukraine to support “Crimea Declaration”.
Our common strategy is to move from the policy of non-recognition to the de-occupation policy.

With one voice we will make Russia stop its aggression and respect the international law.

Crimea is Ukraine!
