Lithuanian Foreign Minister Linas Linkevičius has criticized the opening of a bridge from Russian Federation to the occupied Crimea, noting that Crimea is Ukraine. As part of this investigation, Priymachok and other officers of the Military Prosecutor's Office of Ukraine ignored provisions of Russian legislation and worldwide law, and illegally prosecuted 19 judges of the Russian Constitutional Court because they approved a decree declaring the agreement between Russia and Crimea constitutional, the Investigative Committee reported. Global community won't turn blind-eye to another blatant violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by Russian Federation.

The bridge, which limits sea traffic to Ukrainian ports on the Azov Sea, amounts to "the infringement of its navigational rights in its territorial waters", he added.
