Ukraine will not recognize the treaty that Russia signed with the representatives of Crimea on Tuesday after the Russian president’s address to the Federal Assembly.

      According to the Ukrainian Foreign Minister, Russia poses a threat to the civilized world and international security.

      The move to make Crimea a part of Russia which the West has branded an annexation has been widely expected following the Sunday referendum on the peninsula populated by an ethnic Russian majority.

      Earlier on Tuesday, the Kremlin signed an order to recognize the independence of Crimea after its people overwhelmingly voted to join Russia.

      The move has been condemned by the West, with the EU and the US imposing a raft of sanctions on individuals and freezing military cooperation.

      US sanctions target seven Russian government officials — presidential aide Vladislav Surkov, presidential advisor Sergey Glazyev, head of State Duma’s CIS committee Leonid Slutsky, head of the Federation Council’s Constitutional Legislation committee Andrey Klishas, speaker of the Federation Council Valentina Matviyenko, vice-premier Dmitry Rogozin and head of State Duma’s committee for the affairs of family, women and children Yelena Mizulina.

      The list also includes four Ukrainians, including the country’s former president Viktor Yanukovich, former chief of staff Viktor Medvedchuk, and Crimea’s newly-elected leader Sergey Aksyonov and head of the republic’s legislature Vladimir Konstantinov.

      The US is expected to freeze their assets and impose a visa ban.
