"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.
