Summary of Disinformation

Former NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen does not rule out that Crimea will not be part of Ukraine in the future.

Disproof

In fact, he stated that the illegal annexation of Crimea should never be recognized since there might come a time, as with the Baltic states, for independence from the occupier; "I wouldn’t exclude the possibility that one day, in the future, circumstances will allow us to welcome Crimea as a free entity, whether it will be an integrated part of Ukraine, or whatever, I don’t know how. But I wouldn’t exclude the possibility that a new situation could arise, so we should never, ever recognize the illegal annexation of Crimea."
