KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's Foreign Ministry condemned a visit by President Vladimir Putin to the Crimean peninsula annexed by Russia in March as a deliberate escalation of a crisis between the two countries.
"Such a provocation is yet another confirmation that Russia is deliberately pursuing further escalation of tensions in Ukrainian-Russian relations," Ukraine's Foreign Ministry said in a statement on Friday.
