WASHINGTON - The United States criticized Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to Crimea on Friday as provocative and repeated the US rejection of Moscow's annexation of the Black Sea peninsula.

"This trip is provocative and unnecessary. Crimea belongs to Ukraine and we don't recognize, of course, the illegal and illegitimate steps by Russia in that regard," State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki told reporters at her daily briefing.
