Von der Leyen, the EU will never recognize Crimea as Russian

(ANSA) – BRUSSELS, AUGUST 23 – “The EU will never recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia.

We work tirelessly with Ukraine to denounce human rights violations, bring the perpetrators to justice and support the victims “, said the president of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen at the conference for Crimea.” Crimea was not only used as a military base but also as a test for other brutal annexations of part of the Ukrainian territory. The EU will be alongside Ukraine for as long as it takes and our desire to see Ukraine as a member of the EU has never been stronger “. (ANSA).
