The creation of the Crimea Platform is a way to restore the rights of people on the occupied peninsula.
“Crimea Platform is a way to give people in Crimea their rights back, from access to education to religious freedom. As well as to allow them to use international banking systems, protect property in courts, enjoy visa-free travel, choose their TV channel or their government,” Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba posted on Twitter.
The Crimea Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to increase the effectiveness 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 occupation regime, and achieve the main goal of the de-occupation of Crimea and its return to Ukraine.
The Crimea Platform will be launched at the summit on August 23, to which the President of Ukraine invites leaders of many countries.
