Ukraine's envoy: Lavrov's new song "Visa discrimination" of Russians in Crimea

Permanent Representative of Ukraine to the Council of Europe Dmytro Kuleba has said that Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov mentioned "visa discrimination" of Russians in Russian-occupied Crimea after Ukraine had signed EU visa waivers.

"Sergey Lavrov has just performed a solo program... The author also presented his new hit 'Visa discrimination of Russians in Crimea,'" Kuleba wrote on Facebook on Friday while commenting on Lavrov's statement at a meeting of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe in Nicosia, Cyprus.

Kuleba noted that a visa-free regime for Ukraine took the Russians to the very depths "if they are already 'singing' in this way." In addition, this also says a lot about the mood in Crimea, he said.

As UNIAN reported earlier, on May 17, an official ceremony took place in the European Parliament to sign a legislative act under which a visa-free regime with the European Union would be introduced for citizens of Ukraine.
