Latvia shuts out recognition of Russia's annexation of Crimea.

As reported by Censor.NET citing Ukrainski Novyny, this was announced by Latvian President Raimonds Vejonis at the joint press-conference with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Tuesday.

"Latvia never supported Crimea annexation, and we are not going to recognize it ever. Crimea was, is, and shall remain Ukrainian," he said.

Vejonis also noted that the Minsk agreements reached in Belarus should be fulfilled by Russia in full, and only after that it would be possible to talk of reconsideration of sanctions against it.

"If Russia speaks of delay in fulfilling of the Minsk agreements or rescheduling of them, it will not be good," the president said.

He also noted that the European Union's stance remains unified in this matter.

As reported earlier, Luxembourg's PM Xavier Bettel believed that reconsideration of EU's sanctions against Russia would depend on implementing the entire complex of agreements reached in Minsk, Belarus.Источник: https://en.censor.net.ua/n358031
