On March 15, the leader of the illegal terrorist formation in Donbas "DPR" Aleksandr Zakharchenko came to the Crimea annexed by Russia before the election of the Russian president, according to the reports of the media controlled by militants.
Zakharchenko intends to take part in the events for the fourth anniversary of the annexation of the peninsula.
The leader of the "DPR" came to the occupied Crimea with a delegation including also the so-called "Minister of Revenue and Fees" Aleksandr Timofeyev.
QHA reported that Putin in Crimea visited the Kerch bridge and Simferopol airport. The Head of the Kremlin came to the Crimea a few days before the presidential elections in Russia, which will also be illegally held in the occupied Crimea on March 18.
President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the arrival of Vladimir Putin in the occupied Crimea is a farce and a provocation. The Head of state called for a resolute response to "the elective farce that Moscow organizes this Sunday in the occupied territory of the Ukrainian Crimea - on the fourth anniversary of an attempted annexation of the Crimean peninsula."
