This is the starter position with which we are working to put an end to this occupation," Kuleba said in an interview with the 'Crimea. Realities' Crimean project of Ukraine's Radio Svoboda.

"Certainly, companies have the right to file lawsuits. It is very important for us that the laws of the Russian Federation in no way recognize the jurisdiction of the Russian Federation in a broader status than the status of an occupying state. But our key task, my key task, as a representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is to keep this framework here is a temporary illegal occupation," said Kuleba.
