We commemorate memory of thousands of people who bravely protested Russia's disgraceful land-grab from Ukraine – UK Ambassador.

On the Day of Resistance to the Occupation of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, British Ambassador to Ukraine Melinda Simmons said that she honors the memory of thousands of people who protested against the seizure of Ukrainian lands by the Russian Federation.

"Today Ukraine marks the Day of Resistance to the Occupation of Crimea & Sevastopol. We commemorate the 1000s of people who bravely protested Russia's disgraceful land-grab from Ukraine, including those killed, injured and prosecuted for daring to say that CrimeaIsUkraine," Simmons wrote on her Twitter account on Friday.

In its turn, the Swiss embassy stressed that the country's position regarding the annexation of Crimea remains unchanged.

"Switzerland's position remains unwavering: The annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation constitutes an act contravening international law and the principle of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of states in particular. CrimeaIsUkraine," the Embassy said on Twitter.
