"Russia is not going to discuss the issue of Crimea’s return to Ukraine with foreign partners, including the US, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said ... 'As for Crimea’s return, this issue will not be discussed as it cannot be discussed' ... When asked if Trump raised the issue of the Crimean status during this contact, Peskov said: 'No, he didn’t' ... The Kremlin’s press service earlier said that during their phone conversation on January 28, Putin and Trump showed determination to conduct an active joint effort on stabilizing and developing Russian-US cooperation. The sides discussed vital international issues and also major aspects of the Ukrainian crisis. The leaders agreed to establish partner-type cooperation in those and other areas. ... 'The Russian president is patiently and systematically explaining to its partners the causes that brought about a situation in which the people of Crimea had made a decision to seek protection from Russia and to become its part. He is patiently and systematically telling the story of the government coup in Ukraine, largely sponsored from outside the country' ... Russia hopes, he went on to say, that contacts with the United States will be established and we will have an opportunity to convey its arguments to the US partners constructively, calmly and in a business-like fashion. The Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol, a city with a special status on the Crimean Peninsula, where most residents are Russians, refused to recognize the legitimacy of Kiev authorities brought to power amid riots during a coup in Ukraine in February 2014. Crimea and Sevastopol adopted declarations of independence on March 11, 2014. They held a referendum on March 16, 2014, in which 96.77% of Crimeans and 95.6% of Sevastopol voters chose to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. The Russian president signed the reunification deals March 18, 2014. Despite the convincing results of the referendum, Kiev refused to recognize Crimea as part of Russia."
