MOSCOW, June 6. /TASS/. Picturing Crimea as part of Ukraine on the new uniform of Ukraine’s national football team is an agonizing artistic liberty, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said on Sunday.

“Ukraine’s football team has attached Ukraine to Russia’s Crimea. The explanation is as metaphysical as the agonizing artistic liberty itself – it is to cheer up the players,” she wrote on her Telegram channel.
