Ukraine's Embassy in Washington has called on U.S. channel CNN to better check the facts after the publication of a photo of the Russian-occupied city of Simferopol with the caption "Russian city."

"We hope that our friends from CNN will do better fact checking and content choice. Simferopol is a Ukrainian city in Crimean peninsula occupied by Russia. Don't follow Russia's playbook. Crimea is Ukraine," the embassy wrote on Twitter.

The embassy also said that the photo had been taken by a photographer from Russia's TASS news agency.
