The United Kingdom does not and will not recognize Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea, Ambassador Karen Pierce, UK Permanent Representative to the United Nations, has stated.

“The United Kingdom is committed to Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity. We do not and will not recognize Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea. The illegal seizure of Crimea by Russia in March 2014 is in direct contravention of the UN Charter. The action threatens international peace and security and it has global consequences,” she stated at a meeting of the UN Security Council, an Ukrinform correspondent reported.

She stressed that it was Russian aggression in 2014 that “gave rise to this conflict with complete disregard for international law.”

“Russia could demonstrate her commitment to the rules-based international system by using her considerable influence on the separatists to ensure that these so-called elections do not take place,” the Ambassador said.

As reported, an open meeting of the UN Security Council on Ukraine was held in New York on Tuesday.
