Merkel, Macron put forward unacceptable demands to Moscow — Russian Foreign Ministry

Moscow believes that demands concerning human rights in Crimea and tensions in the Kerch Strait and the Sea of Azov, put forward by Germany and France, are unacceptable, the Russian Foreign Ministry said, commenting on a joint statement German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron made on December 28.

According to the Russian Foreign Ministry, the second part of the statement is regrettable, "in which Berlin and Paris flatly accuse Russia of violating human rights in Crimea and raising tensions in the Sea of Azov and the Kerch Strait, and also put forward unacceptable demands." "We would like to point out that attempts to question the legal status of Crimea and Sevastopol as Russian regions are useless, as people there made their choice freely and in accordance with international law. Russia will continue to resolutely protect its sovereignty and deter provocations," the ministry added.
