For this reason, the EU's position is clear: it does not recognize and will not recognize the so-called self-named representations of the illegally annexed Crimean peninsula, and it has no willingness to interact in any way with any such entities.

Earlier, the Russian Izvestia edition reported that a "representative office" of Russian-occupied Crimea would be set up in Brussels early in 2019 and a working group had been created for this.

This so-called "representation" had to be included in the register of lobbying groups in EU structures with the aim of "overcoming the sanctions regime."
