“The United States continues to condemn and call for an immediate objective to the Russian occupation of Crimea, ” told Nikki Haley, President Donald Trump’s envoy to the world body. “Crimea is a part of Ukraine. Our Crimea-related sanctions will remain in place until Russia returns control over the peninsula to Ukraine.”
