"June 12 is Russia Day, and today the Russian Ambassador holds a ceremonial reception with the guests already invited. As far as we know, these are the consuls of different countries. As we see, there are flags of Belarus, Korea, and other countries. We wanted to remind them, that Donbas is totally destroyed because of the Russian Federation. People are killed because of the Russian Federation. Crimea is occupied, people are murdered and tortured over there, also because of the Russia's actions. Russia should bear responsibility for that," Crimean activist Serhiy Mokreniuk said.

He added that the protest campaign was aimed at the attempt to communicate to the representatives of the foreign countries that they ‘are fed from the hands of the torturers', and their participation in the event is insulting for the Ukrainian side.

Both Ukraine and the countries of the Western world accuse Russia of the support of the pro-Russian separatists and militants in Donbas region. Kremlin rejects all accusations, and in response claims that there are no Russian servicemen in eastern Ukraine, except the so-called ‘volunteers'.

On February 20, 2014, Ukraine's Parliament officially announced the beginning of the temporary occupation of Crimea and Sevastopol by Russia.

The international organizations deemed Crimea occupation and annexation as illegal and condemned the actions of Russia. As a result, the Western countries introduced a number of sanctions against Russia. Russia denied to acknowledge the occupation of the peninsula and in its turn labeled it as a ‘restoration of the historical justice'.
