Nicaragua recognized Crimea as part of Russia in 2014
The consulate will be opened in Simferopol in the presence of Nicaragua's Ambassador to the Russian Federation, Alba Azucena Torres.
Nicaragua opens the first consulate of a foreign state on the territory of the Crimean peninsula, annexed in 2014 by the Russian Federation. This was announced on Monday, November 9, by the Interfax news agency with reference to the “Deputy Prime Minister of Crimea” Georgy Muradov.
According to him, the consulate will be opened in Simferopol, where the Ambassador of Nicaragua to the Russian Federation Alba Azucena Torres is now heading after visiting Kerch. Note that Nicaragua recognized the peninsula as part of Russia in 2014.
In 2014, the United States and the European Union imposed economic sanctions against individuals and companies that cooperate with enterprises located on the Crimean peninsula – or do business there themselves.
Citizens of different countries, planes, passenger and cargo ships who have illegally visited Crimea are also subject to sanctions.
