Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs expressed protest due to uncoordinated with Ukraine visit of the Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev to the territory of Ukraine on July 25, 2016.

Another visit of the of the Russian Federation official to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, which is an integral part of Ukraine, evidenced the continuing Russia's disregard of the UN Charter, the UN GA resolution A / RES / 68/262 'Territorial Integrity of Ukraine,' the Baku Declaration and the resolutions of the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly, as well as the principles and norms of international law.

Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol have been, is and will remain the territory of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders. This has been recognized by the whole world that gave a proper assessment of the Russia's actions and continues to implement the relevant restrictive measures.

Therefore, the Russian officials' attempts to interpret such "visits" to Ukraine as a domestic travel are void. Russian Foreign Ministry has been sent a relevant note of protest, according to the domestic MFA.
