Ukraine protests Putin's trip to Crimea
MOSCOW (AP) — Ukraine's Foreign Ministry has protested Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Crimea, where he attended a pro-Kremlin motorcycle club's annual festival.
The Foreign Ministry on Aug. 11 called Putin's trip "a crude violation by the Russian side of state sovereignty and the territorial integrity of our state."
The Russian leader wore black leather and drove a motorbike during the Shadow of Babylon show organized by the Night Wolves.
Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in 2014, a move that most countries view as illegal.
