Apple agrees to show Crimea as part of Russian territory on its apps

Apple has complied with Russian demands to show the annexed Crimean peninsula as part of Russian territory on its apps.
 
Russian forces annexed Crimea from Ukraine in March 2014, drawing international condemnation.
 
The region, which has a Russian-speaking majority, is now shown as Russian territory on Apple Maps and its Weather app, when viewed from Russia.
 
But the apps do not show it as part of any country when viewed elsewhere.
