Financial Mirror (Cyprus) - - FRONT PAGE -

The For­eign Min­istry has dis­missed press re­ports of al­le­ga­tions of an im­port of 4,603 tonnes of bar­ley orig­i­nat­ing in Crimea on June 23. It said that in­ves­ti­ga­tions con­ducted by the au­thor­i­ties “re­vealed that there was no im­port of ce­re­als orig­i­nat­ing in Crimea into the Repub­lic of Cyprus”.

The an­nounce­ment points out that the Euro­pean Coun­cil at its meet­ing on March 20-21 unan­i­mously con­demned the il­le­gal an­nex­a­tion of the Au­ton­o­mous Repub­lic of Crimea and the city of Sev­astopol to the Rus­sian Fed­er­a­tion and em­pha­sised that it will not recog­nise it.

It added that the au­thor­i­ties “are duly in­formed about the adop­tion of the above­men­tioned bind­ing EU le­gal acts and are tak­ing all nec­es­sary ac­tions.
