@Crimea_Ukr blogger noticed that Google shows the boundaries with Crimea in different ways, depending on the user (from Ukraine or Russia).

“Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine should clarify with @google why the administrative boundary of Crimea is marked as the boundary between Russia and Ukraine,” he wrote on the social media. 

He also provided the photo evidence: screenshots of maps with clear international border between Ukraine and Crimea. 

Other users have noticed that there is no boundary between Ukraine and the peninsula in the Ukrainian version of the Google Maps.
