According to Russian investigators, Ukraine's law enforcement authorities instituted criminal proceedings in which an agreement on reunification of Crimea and Sevastopol with Russia was identified as willful acts aimed at the country's territorial changes. "We call on the Russian Federation to cease its violations of this fundamental tenet of the rules-based worldwide order", the message said.

It also noted that such actions by Russia run counter to the assurances of commitment to a peaceful resolution of the conflict with Ukraine which have been repeatedly made by members of the Russian administration.

"We urge the Russian side to refrain from further violations of Ukraine's territorial integrity and independence", the statement reads.

"Canada condemns the construction and partial opening today (on May 16) of the Kerch Strait Bridge", she said.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation condemned the opening of the Kerch bridge and regarded it as another violation of Ukraine's sovereignty.

"The bridge, which links Russia to illegally-annexed Crimea, represents yet another violation of Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity by the Russian Federation". The construction of the bridge connecting Crimea to the Russian mainland kicked off in February 2016.

"Russia continues to demonstrate a clear disregard for worldwide law", Cazalet said, adding that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation will not recognise Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.
