Correction by the British newspaper The Guardian of the caption for a photo of the Crimean Tavrida festival speaks of pressure from Western authorities on the media, said Deputy Chairman of the Crimean Council of Ministers Georgy Muradov.

“This is a testament to the lack of freedom of the press abroad, particularly in the UK. They finally put pressure: if the journalist wrote: & # 39; Crimea. Russia, "they will certainly correct it," quoted TASS Muradova.
In his opinion, similar cases will continue in the future until the position of the ruling circles of the West changes.
The Guardian placed the shot of the event in the top 20 frames of the day and called the peninsula Russian. In the later publication, however, the designation Crimea as the territory of Russia has been removed from the website.
The Crimea became the Russian region after a referendum in March 2014, in which most of the people voted for reunification with Russia.
