"At a time when no civilized country in the world has ever recognized Russia's attempt to annex Ukrainian Crimea, Russian occupiers still seek to legitimize their crime at least for the audience of their own propaganda TV channels. To this end, the Russian government has brought several politicians with a reduced threshold of political hygiene to the peninsula to celebrate the 3rd anniversary of its seizure. Sadly, Jaroslav Golik, a member of the parliament of the Czech Republic, a country that knows from its own experience what occupation and annexation is, was among the visitors," the statement says.

"We highly appreciate the consistent position of the government of the Czech Republic regarding the condemnation and non-recognition of Russia's attempts to annex temporarily occupied Crimea. Therefore we urge the leadership of the Chamber of Deputies of the Parliament of the Czech Republic to give a proper evaluation of the actions of their MP," the embassy noted.

The statement stresses Ukraine strongly condemns the unauthorized visit of the Czech parliamentarian to occupied Crimea and promises a relevant reaction of law enforcement authorities.

Earlier, the Kremlin puppets reported "the first visit of Ukrainian politicians" to occupied Crimea. In turn, National Security and Defense Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov instructed the Security Service to check the information about the visit of Ukrainian and foreign politicians to Crimea. If confirmed, the latter will face sanctions, while the former may go to jail.
