The foreign Ministry of Ukraine intends to ask the newspaper The New York Times with the requirement to correct the “mistake” on the map published edition, where the Ukrainian Crimea is designated as “disputed territory”. About this Twitter wrote foreign Ministry spokesman Marian Betz.
“Crimea is not “disputed” territory. A temporarily occupied territory of Ukraine. The occupier is known, the Russian Federation. Refer to the @nytimes. Errors need to be fixed,” she wrote.
We will remind, the American edition of the New York Times published a map on which the temporarily occupied Crimea is shown as “disputed territory”.
