American Agency Bloomberg in a publication dated June 21, not marked on the map, the Ukrainian Crimea.

Material devoted to elections in developing countries. Ukraine painted in yellow, reminding that elections will be held in 2019. The territory of Russia marked in dark grey color – the election here is already gone. Crimea said neutral, light gray color.

Some key emerging markets are about to run the gantlet of potentially game-changing elections

Embassy of Ukraine to the United States on Twitter urged the publication to correct the map and “do not play aggressive games and propaganda”.

Journalism should be correct. Bloomberg @business,don’t play into Russian aggressive games&propaganda!#Crimea is temporarily under Russia’s occupation, but it is & will be an integral part of #Ukraine’s territory
Please, correct the map, Crimea should be marked in yellow as *

After that, Bloomberg has temporarily removed the infographic, promising to rectify the inaccuracy.

Russia annexed the Crimea and Sevastopol after the military blockade of Ukrainian military units and illegal referendum on 16 March 2014. The annexation of Crimea by Russia is not recognised by Ukraine and most countries of the world.
