Embassy of Ukraine asked The New York Times to change map with Crimea
The Ukrainian embassy in the United States asked the editors of The New York Times to correct a mistake in a recent publication that depicts a map of the Russian Crimea. This was reported on the official page of the diplomatic mission on Facebook.
This is an article of November 3, dedicated to the Ukrainian oligarch Igor Kolomoisky and his plans for the construction of a ski resort in the Carpathians. The material features a map on which the Crimean peninsula is painted in the same color as the territory of Russia.
The embassy asked The New York Times not to be mistaken with the image of Crimea and thereby "not play into the hands of Russian information propaganda."
The diplomatic mission noted that the publication published a map "with clear violations of the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine", and relied on the prompt reaction of The New York Times journalists.
