Crimea shown as Russian region on Google Maps
Crimea is shown as a Russian region on Google Maps now, the Russian State Duma's information policy committee chair Leonid Levin said.
"When accessing the maps from Russia, Crimea is shown as a Russian territory. In addition, Google’s official representative contacted us… and officially confirmed that on the territory of Russia, Crimea is shown as Russian territory, while abroad it is shown as a disputed territory", RIA Novosti cited the lower house's information policy committee chair as saying.
Earlier in the day, lower house speaker Vyacheslav Volodin said he would be summoning a Google representative to the State Duma's security committee to discuss Crimea's status on Google Maps.
