President Donald Trump told leaders at a G7 summit dinner that Crimea is Russian, diplomatic sources told Buzzfeed.

Crimea, which was a part of Russia from 1783, became a part of independent Ukraine after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. In 2014 Crimeans voted in a popular referendum to reunify with Russia after an armed neo-Nazi-led coup overthrew Ukraine’s pro-Russian leadership replacing it with a radical Russophobic¬†regime.
