On Tuesday, August 23, 2022, the second summit of the Crimean Platform will take place. This was announced by the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Due to the Russian invasion, it will be in an online format.< /p>

Three tasks were set for this summit:

  • Increase the number of participants
  • Expand the geography of participation in the Crimean Platform
  • To raise the level of the summit participants

I can already note that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, together with the Office of the President of Ukraine, our embassies and missions abroad, are successfully fulfilling all three.  year will positively surprise both the number of participants and the global geography and level of representation.

Participants

Last year, the Crimean Platform summit also revealed weaknesses. In particular, it united the Euro-Atlantic space and the G7 countries, but Asia, Africa and Latin America were poorly represented.  This year, the Crimean platform will become global and its geography will expand to include the countries of the African continent and the other side of the Atlantic.

Ukraine has already received confirmation from new countries and international organizations. In addition, the level of participants will also be higher. In 2021, out of 46 delegations, 15 were represented at the level of heads of state, government and parliaments, and 3 more – at the level of leadership of international institutions.

As of today, participation in the second summit of the International Crimean Platform has already been confirmed by about 60 countries and international organizations. Including about 40 at the level of presidents and prime ministers.< /p>

I won’t reveal all the details so as not to make it easier for our enemy. Tomorrow you will see everything.

Kuleba notes that the Crimean Platform summit is especially relevant against the backdrop of full-scale war.

Russian aggression demonstrates how acute the issue of ending the occupation of Crimea is. After all, Russia uses the enthusiastic peninsula as a military base for its aggression and destabilization of the whole world. Returning Crimea under control Ukraine ensures the security of the entire Black Sea region, Europe and the world.
