The occupied peninsula is depicted as part of the Russian Federation
A store in Mogilev which is in eastern Belarus is selling globes with Crimea depicted as a part of the Russian Federation.
According to a local news agency, both the peninsula and Russia are painted in the same colour. The maps also feature a border between Crimea and Ukraine. The listed manufacturers of the globes are in Russia and Poland.
The Polish sphere costs around 800 000 Belarusian roubles. It equals to approximately USD 40, according to the National Bank of the Republic of Belarus.
Russia occupied Crimea after a so-called referendum in March 2014. Ukraine and Western states have said the voting was orchestrated by the Kremlin. They have called on Moscow to retreat from the peninsula and return it to Ukraine.
