"Furthermore, it will condemn the crimes of the Russian Federation, non-linear indeed, in fact a very wide range of crimes that occur every day. This is actually a joint declaration, a platform where countries are consolidated with Ukraine around a strategic vision. It includes ultimately a de-occupation. Secondly - the countries are consolidating around the way this should happen. And they actually declare their participation in this way and not only declare, but will also participate in the future, because the summit does not end, it is just a beginning. It is 2022 year ahead, and there is a very clear plan of action that we plan to implement together with our partners during the year," Dzhaparova added.

She also noted that today another, the 30th president announced his participation in the summit.

Earlier, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said that 29 countries had already confirmed their participation in the Crimean Platform summit, which will be held on August 23.

As it was reported earlier, the Crimean Platform was initiated as an international coordinating mechanism to return the Crimea issue to the international agenda, protect human rights in Crimea and promote the de-occupation of the peninsula.

In February of this year, Zelensky signed a decree on the creation of an organizing committee for the preparation and holding of the summit.

In May, EU foreign ministers agreed to consider participating in the Crimean Platform summit.
