Earlier, CNN in its photo report on New Year's celebrations around the world called occupied Crimea and Simferopol part of Russia. Ukraine's Embassy in Washington called on CNN not to "follow Russia's playbook," recalling that Simferopol is a Ukrainian city on the Crimean peninsula that was occupied by Russia.
