Ukraine’s strategy of returning occupied Crimea consists of two basic parts: political-diplomatic and informational, stated the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Pavlo Klimkin in an interview to “1+1” TV channel, reports “Interfax-Ukraine”.
“We have such a strategy”, - Klimkin assured.
The first part of the plan is political-diplomatic. It includes the support of international community, which doesn’t recognize occupation of Crimea and continues to impose sanctions on Russia. The Minister also mentioned cooperation with countries of the world and the civil society in order to “pressure Russia and prevent human rights violation”.
He also emphasized that it is necessary to pressure the Russian Federation as to what concerns international conventions: convention on the Law of Sea, convention on the fight against terrorism, as well as support Ukrainian companies that sue Russia to get compensation for losses after the annexation of Crimea.
The second element of the strategy is informational. "Citizens of Crimea are subjected to terrible propaganda, we must show them, on our own example, that their future is in a European and democratic Ukraine, not in occupied Crimea with no future".
