Foreign Ministry: For Poland Crimea remains part of Ukraine

Poland together with international society does not recognize illegal Russia’s annexation of Crimea. In view of the international law, Crimea remains a part of Ukraine’s territory.

A representative of the Polish Foreign Ministry told Ukrinform correspondent.

“Our position on this case remains the same: Poland together with the whole European Union and a significant part of the international society doesn’t recognize Russia’s annexation of Crimea. In view of the current international law, Crimea remains a part of Ukraine,” the Polish Foreign Ministry said.

According to the Polish Foreign Ministry, Poland supports diplomatic actions by the European Union regarding the second anniversary of Crimea occupation, in particular a recent statement made by High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs Federica Mogherini.

As a reminder, two years ago, on March 16, 2014, a so-called referendum on Crimea’s joining the Russian Federation took place. This referendum has not been recognized by the international society.
