26.04.2019 - Embassy Press Officer’s reply to a media question concerning the statements of FCO Minister of State Sir Alan Duncan on Crimea

Question: How would you comment on the statement of Minister of State Sir Alan Duncan, who has yet again condemned the “illegal annexation” of the Crimean Peninsula and “a continued destabilization of Ukraine” by Russia?

The British government continues to show complete disrespect to the democratic choice of the Crimeans, made through a free expression of their will 5 years ago fully in line with international law. They voted with an overwhelming majority for a reunification of the peninsula with Russia, exercising their right to self-determination proclaimed in the UN Charter. Therefore they made a choice for peaceful and sustained development.
