President Petro Poroshenko says that not a single country of the world has recognized the annexation of Crimea.
Speaking of Crimea at the joint press availability with the Romanian President, Petro Poroshenko has reminded that a year ago, criminal so-called "referendum" had been held with which the Russian party had tried to legalize the annexation of Crimea. "They didn't succeed – not a single country has recognized the results of this so-called "referendum". Instead, the whole world and Romania in particular have proved that they are standing for the compliance with the principle of inviolability of borders recognized by the international partners," the President emphasized.
The President says that in the late February 2014, he was in Crimea when the Crimean Parliament was filled with "green men" that in fact, according to the Russian President, were GRU officials and soldiers that seized the governmental body of Crimea. "There was no voting there," Petro Poroshenko noted.
The President of Romania has emphasized that his country had been supporting the independence and territorial integrity of Ukraine since the very beginning of the Crimean annexation and the invasion of Donbas. "Borders can not be changed by force. The territorial integrity should be guaranteed," Klaus Iohannis said and added that Romania would further comprehensively support its friendly neighbors and reliable partners, including Ukraine.
