The United States will have a high-level representative at the Crimean Platform summit, as well as at the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence.
“I do not yet have specific news on this issue [possible participation of U.S. President Joe Biden in the celebrations of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence] but I can say for sure that we received an invitation, and to the Crimean Platform as well. There will be a high-level representative at these events, but I can't say who it is yet," Chargé d'Affaires a.i. of the United States in Ukraine Kristina Kvien said in an interview with ICTV.
Crimean Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to improve the efficiency of the international response to the occupation of Crimea, respond to growing security challenges, step up international pressure on Russia, prevent further human rights violations, protect victims of the occupying power and to achieve the de-occupation of Crimea and its return to Ukraine.
Crimean Platform is expected to operate at the level of heads of state and government, foreign ministers, in the dimension of inter-parliamentary cooperation and expert network.
Ukraine is actively inviting world countries to take part in the Crimean Platform activities.
The Crimean Platform is to be launched officially at an inaugural summit in Kyiv in August 2021.
