Moscow has not yet commented on the statement of the Ukrainian authorities ~
The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine issued a statement on the imminent visit of the US multinational inspection team to the country. The group will also include representatives of Canada and Denmark. As stated in the document, the inspectors will make a trip to military units and divisions stationed in the east of Ukraine and monitor the military and political situation in the country as a whole.
The military department notes that Crimea is also included in the inspection area. In Kiev, they emphasize that this circumstance points to the non-recognition of the peninsula by the United States as part of the Russian territory.
"The American side included the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea in the inspection area, which is another evidence of the non-recognition by the US, the annexation of the peninsula by the Russian Federation," the statement said.
As RIA Novosti reports , there are currently no comments on this issue from the Russian authorities.
The inspection team will travel in accordance with the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe.
