KIEV (AFP) - Ukraine will never recognise Russia's annexation of Crimea, a spokesman for the foreign ministry in Kiev said Tuesday, quoted by news agency Interfax-Ukraine.

"We do not recognise and will never recognise the so-called independence and so-called agreement on Crimea's integration into Russia," said Yevgen Perebyinis, adding that the signed accord had "nothing to do with democracy, rule of law or common sense."
