Ukrainian Ambassador to Germany Andriy Melnyk has said the German government criticized the visit of members of the far-right political party "Alternative for Germany" to occupied Crimea last week.

"The Federal Government of Germany has criticized the visit of a group of local politicians from the AfD party to the occupied Crimea, and reiterated the policy of non-recognition of illegal annexation," he wrote on Twitter.

As UNIAN reported earlier, a delegation of German parliamentarians from three regional parliaments visited Russian-occupied Crimea in violation of Ukrainian laws. The German politicians claimed they were not concerned over a possible travel ban by Ukraine.
