The summit of the Crimean Platform will take place on August 23. Ihor Zhovkva, Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine announced it, as reported by the president's press-office.

He notes that it is necessary to make specific decisions on the de-occupation of the peninsula at the summit of the Crimean Platform.

“We do not hold a summit for the sake of a summit. We do not need to hold a summit and forget this topic again. Therefore, after the summit, obviously, a declaration should appear, and more importantly, a coordinated international toolkit for the de-occupation of Crimea and the protection of the rights of Ukrainians in Crimea,” the deputy head of the President’s Office noted.

Earlier, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba reported that the international Crimean platform summit on the de-occupation of the peninsula would take place in May 2021 in Kyiv.
