Disproof

This wasn't an official delegation. The reaction of the German government spokesman Steffen Seibert:  "We are fundamentally critical of such visits, but private travel does not fall under sanctions.”

Seibert noted that Germany adheres to non-recognition policy due to illegal annexation of Crimea by Russia and that Germany warns those who decide to travel about the legal consequences from Ukraine's side.
