The United States should keep its anti-Russian sanctions in place as long as Crimea remains a part of Russia, Washington’s UN Ambassador Nikki Haley told the UN Security Council.

 

“Crimea is a part of Ukraine,” she said. “Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine.”

 

She added that her country was seeking to improve relations with Moscow, at the same time asserting that Crima’s reunification with Russia was “aggression,” “occupation” and “military intervention.”
