The Russian president published an article in The National Interest and Rossiyskaya Gazeta. He notes again and again, that contemporary Russia embraces its history as a whole, with its good and bad sides, while the Western archives remain secret and revisionism spreads.
Kiev and its western allies do not recognize the results of the plebiscite and consider Crimea as part of the Ukrainian territory occupied by Moscow.
Recurrent disinformation about the illegal annexation of Crimea.
The so-called referendum was organized under Russian illegal occupation without complying with neither the Ukrainian electoral code nor the Russia electoral code. The annexation has been condemned by the UNGA (see the resolution A/RES/68/262 on the territorial integrity of Ukraine).
No international body recognises the so-called referendum, announced on 27 February 2014 and held on 16 March 2014. A year after the illegal annexation, Russian President Vladimir Putin admitted that the plan to annex Crimea was ordered weeks before the so-called referendum.
The claim suggests that "Kyiv and its Western allies" do not accept the referendum. The truth is that only eight countries - apart from Russia - has publicly recognised Crimea as Russian territory: Afghanistan, Armenia, Kyrgyzstan, Nicaragua, North Korea, Sudan, Venezuela and Zimbabwe.
The European Union does not recognise Crimea's annexation and continues to condemn it as a violation of international law. EU sanctions continue to be in place against Russia as a consequence of the annexation. For the EU's statement on the sixth anniversary of Crimea annexation see here.
