French Culture Ministry corrects map with Russian Sevastopol

French map for 'Museums Nights'
The Ministry of Culture of France has corrected the map on its official website where Sevastopol was marked as a part of Russia.
At the moment, Ukraine is specified as an address.

Earlier we reported that the French Culture Ministry has created a map with the partakers of the international action 'Museums Night' with their descriptions and addresses.
The Mikhail Kroshytski Sevastopol Art Museum is among the participants. Firstly, it was pointed as 9 Nakhimova Ave, Sevastopol, Russian Federation. Later the information was corrected and the Ukrainian belonging was pointed.

As we reported The New York Times newspaper published a map that depicts Crimea as disputed territory. It was published in the article ‘Putin’s bridge to Crimea may carry more symbolism then traffic’. The New York Times also cited Ekaterina Shulman, the political expert of the Academy of the Russian president who claims that the building of the bridge that unites Russian and the annexed peninsula is symbolical.
Ukraine's Ministry of Foreign Affairs demanded from American newspaper to correct the status of the peninsula to ‘temporary occupied’. However, the NYT claimed that it will not change the map. Later, the newspaper added that it does not accept Russia’s position on the status of Crimea.
