Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna has dismissed as absurd claims made by Russian President Vladimir Putin in a Russian documentary that Poland and Lithuania trained Ukrainian protesters with support from the United States.

Schetyna compared the film, "Crimea: Path to the Motherland," which covered the Russian annexation of the Ukrainian territory of Crimea and the Euromaidan events, to Soviet propaganda from the 1950s and 1960s, Ukraine Today reports.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk has called for the film to be sent to the International Criminal Court in The Hague as evidence of an international crime, as the Russian president admitted in it to planning to annex the peninsula even before Russia invaded Crimea with its troops and organized a sham referendum on joining it to Russia.
