Latvia's Minister of Foreign Affairs Edgars Rinkevics says Russian President Vladimir Putin's recent confession regarding Crimea has only confirmed what was known or suspected – the annexation of Crimea was planned in advance.


"A moment of truth?! President Putin confirms everything we knew or suspected – Crimea was planned in advance, nothing to do with 'referendum,'" Rinkevics wrote on Twitter.
