French MPs, who visited the occupied territory of Crimea, not only violated the law of Ukraine, but also slandered the Crimean Tatars, human rights activist Yevhen Zakharov wrote on Facebook.

"Eleven French MPs not only violated Ukrainian legislation and international sanctions by their visit to Crimea this weekend, but also took part in the infamous propaganda show, denied the blatant violation of human rights in the framework of the Russian occupation and slandered the Crimean Tatars, who were abducted and probably killed," he posted.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on July 29-30, a delegation of 11 French parliamentarians, led by National Assembly deputy and former Minister of Transport Thierry Mariani, once again visited Russian-occupied Crimea.

In response to the visit, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine strongly condemned the visit of the French MPs to the Autonomous Republic of Crimea occupied by the Russian Federation.
