MOSCOW (QHA) -

According to Jean-Maurice Ripert, the residents of Crimea may obtain a French visa only through the French Embassy in Kyiv.

“France and the European Union consider annexation of Crimea illegal. But this should not prevent the inhabitants of the peninsula from coming to France. I recommend them to contact the French Embassy in Kyiv,” Jean-Maurice Ripert wrote on the Embassy’s Facebook page.
