The question of the belonging of the Crimea to Ukraine is not subject to discussion. This opinion was expressed by the Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, commenting on the words of US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson that sooner or later this issue will again be on the agenda.

The chief of US diplomacy earlier once again called on Moscow and Kiev to fulfill their obligations in the framework of the Minsk agreements, and also touched on the issue of Crimean ownership. “We will return to the topic of the Crimea, I know that President Putin has made it clear that this issue will not be discussed, but at some point it will happen,” he said.
