KIEV, 11 Mar – RIA Novosti. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba named “three pillars” of the “return” policy of Crimea.
One of them is the strategy of “de-occupation” of the peninsula, which was previously approved by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine.
“A historical document that should have been back in 2014. A clear signal: we not only call on the world to help return Crimea, Ukraine itself is seriously and systematically engaged in this on the initiative of President Volodymyr Zelensky, ” Kuleba wrote on Twitter .
The second “whale” he called consolidation – the unification of “the efforts of all partners” on the basis of the summit of the “Crimean Platform”, scheduled for August 23. There Kiev wants to discuss the issue of “returning” the peninsula. Ukraine has offered to join the platform for a number of states, including Turkey, France, Great Britain, Germany, Canada and the United States.
Third, Kuleba mentioned synergy – “the restoration of international law and, as a result, full Ukrainian sovereignty” over Crimea and Sevastopol.
In late February, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a decree on measures to “de-occupy” and reintegrate Crimea. Among them – the organization of the summit of the “Crimean Platform”, steps “to develop and support the Crimean Tatar language, culture and protection of the rights” of the Crimeans.
In Crimea, Zelensky's decree was considered a “political bluff.” The head of the parliamentary committee on people's diplomacy and interethnic relations, Yuri Gempel, noted that the effectiveness and relevance of this decree, “like everything that the Kiev authorities are doing with regard to Crimea,” is zero. The State Duma called the document populist.
At the same time, on the eve of the Deputy Head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Justice, Ivan Lishchina, said that residents of Crimea and Donbass had filed eight thousand complaints against Kiev with the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR).
