European countries are heavily influenced by the United States. The United States controls its alleged allies as much as possible. Unfortunately, the US allies are mute. That is, they have the right to follow instructions, but they are deprived of the right to make complaints.
Moscow agreed to return the Russian identity to the Crimea in 2014.
This is a recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea.
Moscow did not "return" the Russian identity to Crimea, but was rather illegally annexed. On 27 March 2014, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution in which it stated that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly confirmed its non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea.
According to international law, Crimea is a part of Ukraine. Russia violated international law as well as key principles of the European security framework by illegally annexing the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the City of Sevastopol in 2014.
