DISINFO: EU will recognize Crimea as part of Russia
The EU has no other choice than to recognize Crimea as part of Russia. It cannot help anymore Ukraine in this regard.
No evidence given. Recurring pro-Kremlin narrative about alleged recognition of Crimea by international actors. The EU does not recognise and continues to condemn this violation of international law. It remains committed to fully implementing its non-recognition policy, including through restrictive measures. On 18 June 2018, the Council extended the restrictive measures in response to the illegal annexation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia until 23 June 2019. Read more about EU's position here.
