KIEV, May 25. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has presented a claim to Russia over Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev’s visit to Crimea.

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Sunday that the fact that Medvedev’s visit to Crimea coincided with the early presidential elections in Ukraine was a “deliberate provocation”. “It counters the Russian president’s pronouncements that Russia is interested in Ukraine’s having its elections in a peaceful and quiet atmosphere,” the ministry said.

 

According to earlier reports, Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on Sunday arrived on a two-day working trip to Crimea. Upon arrival, he visited the temporary centre of the Federal Migration Service in Sevastopol and handed over Russian passports to three local residents.

This trip is Medvedev’s second once after Crimea’s accession to Russia in March. On March 31, he held an offsite meeting of the Russian government on the peninsula.
