The US does not intend to recognize the will of Crimean residents who supported reunification with Russia in 2014
This statement was made on Thursday, February 11, by Rodney Hunter, a representative of the US delegation to the UN, speaking at a meeting of the Security Council.
According to him, the Joe Biden administration is not currently considering lifting anti-Russian sanctions.
“We will never recognise Russia’s attempt to annex Crimea. As a result, US sanctions against Russia for its actions in Ukraine will remain in place until Moscow reconsiders its course”, – Hunter said.
The American also falsely accused Russia of a “military presence” in Donbass, although even OSCE observers deny this.Prisoner exchange format is more important than their release – Zelensky
