France does not recognize annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, Evropeyskaya Pravda reports citing Romen Nadal, Spokesperson for the French Ministry, who commented on the situation involving the Larousse Publishing House which published a 2016 world map showing Crimea as being part of Russia.
“Just like our EU partners and virtually all international community we do not recognize annexation of Crimea and support territorial integrity of Ukraine,” said Nadal after being asked for the French Foreign Ministry’s reaction to the publishing house’s antic.
It was reported earlier that the French publishing house Larousse published a 2016 world map showing Crimea as being part of Russia, drawing sharp criticism from the French Embassy in Ukraine which demanded that the inaccuracy be corrected.
This July, a delegation of French MPs headed by Thierry Mariani visited annexed Crimea without prior agreement with the Ukrainian authorities. That caused the Ukrainian Prosecutor General's Office to initiate a criminal case against the French MPs.
