News Foreign policy Ministry Travel to Poland
11 December 2015
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs emphatically rejects any attempts to portray this trip as action aimed at showing “the real situation” of the peninsula’s inhabitants to the public.
Together with the entire European Union and a significant part of the international community, the Republic of Poland does not recognize the annexation of Crimea, and strongly distances itself from all actions and statements legitimising the violations of international law and Ukraine’s territorial integrity by the Russian Federation.
We also draw attention to the fact that the European Parliament has vigorously condemned the Russian annexation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, which remains part of Ukraine under the applicable international law.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs would further like to recall that Polish citizens are obligated to comply with the regulations on foreign nationals’ stay in the entire Ukrainian territory.
