Russia Day is celebrated with special enthusiasm this year, Russian President Vladimir Putin said.
"Crimea's accession occurred peacefully, upon the will of people and in accordance with the international law. And, as they say here, honestly, fairly and truthfully," Putin said on Thursday when speaking at a reception in Kremlin dedicated to the Russia Day celebration.
