ASTANA, September 25. /TASS/. Ukraine has sent a note of protest to Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry over the country’s decision to mark Crimea as part of the Russian Federation in schoolbooks, according to a statement released by the press service of Ukrainian Embassy in Astana on Friday.
"The Ukrainian Embassy has sent a note of protest to Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry in connection with the fact that schoolbooks issued by the Mektep publishing house say the Autonomous Republic of Crimea is a federal subject of the Russian Federation," the statement said.
"The distribution of this information contradicts the position of the international community and Kazakhstan that has repeatedly stated its support to Ukraine’s territorial integrity," the note of protest stressed.
Ukraine calls on Kazakhstan’s Foreign Ministry and Ministry of Education and Science "to facilitate immediate withdrawal of schoolbooks [that say Crimea is part of Russia] from Kazakhstani schools."
