Kiev promised to act “in full” upon recognition of Crimea in Minsk

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kuleba: recognition of Crimea from the leader of Belarus Lukashenko will be a “blow” , and not his words, but if Minsk really recognizes Crimea as Russian, Ukraine will act “in full,” promised the country's Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba, Pravda reports.

“This will deal an irreparable blow to the Ukrainian Belarusian relations. We will act in full. Crimea is not the issue where we allow ourselves to abstain, “Kuleba said.

Earlier, Lukashenko admitted that Crimea became Russian after the referendum held there in 2014. We all understood that Crimea is de facto the Russian Crimea. After the referendum and de jure, Crimea became Russian, “the Belarusian leader said.

Crimea became part of Russia in March 2014 after a referendum in which the overwhelming majority of the region's residents who voted supported such a decision. At the same time, Belarus did not recognize Crimea as Russian. Earlier, Lukashenko said that he was ready to change his position on the peninsula only if the Russian oligarchs recognize Crimea as part of Russia.
