The Embassy of Ukraine to the UK condemns the arrival of UK national Gary Hunt, who participated in the so-called Cliff Diving Competition, at the territory of the occupied Crimea.

This is stated in a statement posted on the official website of the Ukrainian Embassy to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

"As we found out from media UK national Gary Hunt participated in the so-called Cliff Diving Competition (August, 2017) which took place in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea that has been illegally annexed by the Russian Federation," the statement reads.

The Embassy expressed disappointment that some of the UK nationals had neglected the official position of not only Ukraine but their own state.

The Embassy once again calls on all UK nationals and institutions to refrain from illegally visiting the occupied Crimea without official consent of Ukraine
