Crimea Platform

It is an international platform for discussing ways to de-occupy Crimea.

The inaugural summit of the Crimean Platform took place on August 23, 2021.

This is a newly created international format that aims to achieve the de-occupation of Crimea.

Its functions include:

  • increasing the effectiveness of the international response to the ongoing occupation of Crimea,
  • responses to growing security threats,
  • increasing international pressure on the Kremlin,
  • prevention of further violations of human rights and protection of victims of the occupation regime.

According to the plan, the platform will function at four levels: heads of state, foreign ministers, parliaments, and expert circles.

russia, while commenting on the Crimea Platform, stated that they considered all efforts of Kyiv to return Crimea illegitimate and perceived them as a "threat of aggression against two subjects of the russian federation."

Forty-six delegations from different countries and representatives of international organizations joined the first summit on August 23, 2021.

Eight countries were represented at the level of presidents. In particular, all NATO and EU countries were represented at the summit of the Crimean Platform.
