Crimea is Ukraine: Foreign Ministry of Ukraine requires from Italian edition to correct a map showing the peninsula as a part of Russia

“Taking into account a tactless designation of Crimea on the map of Russian Federation in the fresh issue of Italy’s Limes analytical edition ( https:// mobile. twitter. com/ limeso…/ status/682186628580950017), Ukraine’s ambassador to Italy demanded the magazine’s editorial staff to bring the maps in line with the norms of the international law,” reads a report posted on Ukrainian Foreign Ministry’s website on Facebook on Saturday,” – said the Ministry in a statement on the official page on Facebook, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to Interfax-Ukraine.

“Among other things, in his letter to the edition Ukrainian diplomat noted that a technical error or a deliberate provocation, which “is a challenge to the territorial integrity of Ukraine, ignores the consolidated position of the EU and the United Nations on non-recognition of Crimea’s occupation by Russia”, – the statement says.

It should be recalled that the Coca-Cola Company has recently officially apologized to Ukraine for publishing on Russian social media a map of Russia that included the illegally annexed Crimea.
