It is noted that delegations from 42 states and eight international organizations will take part in the conference.

"Conference participants will analyze the impact of Russian aggression on the security situation in the Black Sea-Azov region and beyond, discuss strategies for responding to existing threats, and consider the future of regional security.

For reference:

As Rubryka reported, the First Black Sea Security Conference of the International Crimean Platform took place in Bucharest on April 12-13, 2023.

"Russia's unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine has destroyed the security system in the Black Sea-Azov region.

Then, several countries confirmed their participation in the Crimean Platform summit at the highest level.

The Black Sea Security Conference completed the architecture of the International Crimean Platform. Representatives of more than 50 countries and organizations took part in the event, which demonstrates the interest in security in the Black and Azov Seas not only from the countries of the region but also from the whole world.
