U.S. Department of State: Russia must end occupation of part of Ukraine

Moscow must fulfill its international obligations and end the conflict in eastern Ukraine and the illegal occupation of the Crimean Peninsula.

“Russia must uphold its commitments under the Minsk agreements and work in good faith to end the conflict in eastern Ukraine.  It must also end its illegal occupation of Crimea,” Ned Price, Spokesperson for the U.S. Department of State, posted on Twitter.

In this regard, he quoted U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who paid a visit to the UK to attend the G7 Foreign and Development Ministers’ Meeting.

“We need to work together to call out Russia’s behavior, hold Russia accountable for its actions, and press Moscow to adhere to its international commitments and obligations,” Blinken underscored in this context.

As reported, the U.S. Secretary of State plans to make a visit to Kyiv on Wednesday to meet with the country's top leadership and civil society leaders.
