He emphasized that the United States does not and will never recognize Russia’s attempted annexation of Crimea, as he made clear when he released the “Crimea Declaration” on July 25. The Secretary welcomed Ukraine’s recent passage of anticorruption court legislation and the Law on National Security and urged Ukraine to fulfill the outstanding IMF requirements.
