Regarding the uncoordinated visit of the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin to the part of the territory of Ukraine temporarily occupied by the Russian Federation - the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol on July 20, 2020, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine states the following.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has repeatedly emphasized and continues to adhere to the principled position of the inadmissibility of uncoordinated visits by Russian officials to the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders, including the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

The Ukrainian side considers the mentioned visit and other trips of Russian officials to the Russian-occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, which are carried out despite of the repeated warnings and protests of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, a gross violation of state sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine against the norms of international law, resolutions of the UN General Assembly A / Res / 68/262 of March 27, 2014 "Territorial integrity of Ukraine", A / Res / 71/205 of December 19, 2016, A / Res / 72/190 of December 19, 2017, A / Res / 73 /  263 of December 22, 2018, A / Res / 74/168 of December 18, 2019 "The situation with human rights in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine", A / Res / 73/194 of December 17, 2018, and A / Res / 74/168 of December 17, 2018  Res / 74/17 of 09 December 2019 “The problem of the militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ukraine, as well as the Black and Azov Seas”, the Baku Declaration of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly (2014) and other resolutions of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly.

Ukraine once again condemns the measures taken by the Russian Federation on the further militarization of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, which poses a significant threat to regional security.

In this regard, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine demands that the Russian side immediately stop all the above-mentioned international illegal actions and eliminate all the consequences they have caused.

The Ukrainian side draws attention to the fact that all responsibility for the negative consequences for the whole region lies, in accordance with international law, on the Russian Federation as the occupying power, its officials, illegal "Crimean authorities" and their representatives who make illegal decisions and commit illegal acts. 

In connection with the mentioned illegal visit on July 20, 2020, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine issued a strong protest to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation.
