“Dear friends, we deeply appreciate your active involvement in the #CrimeaMap campaign in which we monitor the incorrect depiction on electronic and printed maps of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea which was occupied by Russia in 2014. We have already experienced a number of success stories when the improper mapping of the occupied peninsula was corrected”.

The Ministry offers the instruction for those who has found the improper depiction of Crimea and want to correct a mistake.
“The more information you provide, the easier it will be to formulate a claim to the respective company. We are gathering all the facts of improper mapping and will instruct our Embassies to contact the central offices of the respective companies asking them to bring their maps into compliance with international law and UN Resolution № 68/262 of 27 March 2014, which confirms Ukraine's territorial integrity within internationally recognized borders”.
