Ukraine will never accept the loss of Crimea. Valery Zhovtenko, Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary of Ukraine to Lithuania, said in the exclusive interview to ELTA news agency that only negotiation measures would be used to solve the issue of Crimea. In case it fails, the issue should be taken to international court, whereas the option to use military force is not being considered.
