The Russian foreign Ministry called the futile attempts of Ukraine to inspect the Crimea

Ukraine’s attempts to inspect the territory of the Crimea is futile and provocative. On Saturday, April 29, said the Russian foreign Ministry, commenting on the U.S. state Department report on compliance by States of agreements in the field of arms control.

“The current status of the Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol as subjects of the Russian Federation — the issue is resolved. He is not subject to revision. Accordingly, Russia is free to any of its troops and military equipment on its own territory”, — stated in the message the Ministry of foreign Affairs.

Thus the foreign Ministry commented on the issue of compliance with the Vienna document 2011 on confidence-building measures and security.

Crimea became part of Russia in spring 2014 on the outcome of the referendum. Kiev refused to recognize the result of the plebiscite. Moscow specifies that the procedure is fully consistent with international law and stresses that the question of the status of the Peninsula is closed.
