“Due to the Regional Council of Veneto’s resolution, which calls for the government of Italy to recognize the results of the referendum on Crimea’s independence from Ukraine and abolish restrictive measures against the Russian Federation, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation reiterates its firm position and shares it with the European Union, NATO and G7 countries, regarding the non-recognition of referendum results on Crimea’s independence as of March 16, 2014 and its subsequent accession to the Russian Federation, which was carried out in violation of the principles and norms of international law that prohibits the unilateral change of state borders,” the statement reads.
