Ukraine, USA and EU recognised the reunification of Crimea with Russia

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine, the United States of America and the countries of the European Union recognised “the fact of the reunification of the Crimea with Russia.” This is confirmed by the fact that Kyiv deprived the annexed peninsula of electricity and cut off the water supply. Moreover, Washington and Brussels introduced a number of collective sanctions against the Crimean people, which also confirms the fact of recognition of the reunification of the Crimea with Russia.

Disproof

The statement appeared on the anniversary of the annexation of the Crimea.

For the last five years, pro-Kremlin disinformation apparatus has been systematically manufacturing similar disinformation narratives about the "international recognition of the Russian status" of the occupied Ukrainian peninsula.

The EU follows consistent non-recognition policy for Crimea and Sevastopol and so does the US.
