"Crimea was the heart of Ukraine": Zelenskyi signs a decree on measures to de-occupy Crimea and addresses Ukrainians

The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi signed a decree on certain measures aimed at the de-occupation and reintegration of the Crimean peninsula on the Day of Resistance to the Occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol.

The Office of the President reports.

Zelenskyi said that the government was instructed to organize and launch the "Crimean Platform," and implement measures to develop and support the Crimean Tatar language, culture, and protect the rights of residents of the temporarily occupied Crimea.

"Crimea was the heart of Ukraine: sunny, kind, and bright. Seven years ago, it was snatched from us. We'll never forget who did it, and we will never forget who allowed it…

I sincerely believe that the day will come when I will be able to repeal my decree simply because it will lose its relevance and Crimea will return to Ukraine," President stressed.
