President Vladimir Putin is making his visit to Crimea

August 17, 2015 (Ukrinform). Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko compared the trip of Russian President Vladimir Putin to Crimea with the actions of Russian mercenaries in Donbas.

The President wrote this on Facebook. "Putin's visit to Ukrainian Crimea without the consent of the Ukrainian authorities is a challenge to the civilized world and part of the scenario to exacerbate the situation, which is implemented by the Russian military and mercenaries in Donbas. Such visits mean further militarization of the occupied Ukrainian peninsula and increase its isolation," Poroshenko said.
The Ukrainian President stressed that Crimea had a future only as a part of Ukraine.
