Russian president visited occupied peninsula on Friday

Ukraine has drawn the attention of the United Nations to another visit of Russian President Vladimir Putin to the occupied Crimean peninsula, Ukraine's UN mission has reported on Twitter.

Volodymyr Yelchenko, Ukraine's permanent representative to the UN, had a meeting on Friday with Jan Eliasson, UN Deputy Secretary-General to discuss Putin's "unlawful presence in Crimea."

Yelchenko has also turned Eliasson's attention to the high concentration of Russian military equipment along the border with Ukraine as well as in the militant-occupied areas in Donbas, and in Crimea.

Previously, Ukraine's foreign ministry has voiced its protest against Russian president's unauthorised visit into Ukrainian territory.
