2 February, speaking at a meeting of the UN security Council for the first time in the status of a permanent representative of the United States at the world organization, Haley said that restrictive measures against Russia could be lifted only if the return Crimea to Ukraine.

Permanent representative of Russia to the UN Vitaly Churkin, commenting on the statement of his American colleagues, he quoted the U.S. Constitution. “It is impossible not to recall that the Constitution of the United States has made such remarkable historic words: “We the people”. The people of Crimea quite clearly expressed their will in the referendum,” — said the Russian diplomat.
