The Kremlin has called the Crimean Platform summit, which is currently taking place in Kyiv, unfriendly towards Russia. This was stated by Kremlin's spokesman Dmitriy Peskov, as TASS reports.

The inaugural summit of the platform takes place on 23 August 2021, on the eve of the 30th anniversary of Ukraine's independence.

Crimean Platform is a diplomatic initiative of Ukraine. It is designed to be an international coordination mechanism to restore Russia–Ukraine relations by means of reversing the 2014 annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation. The protection of the human rights of Crimean Tatars, environmental degradation, and the stifling of trade in the Black and Azov Sea region are also matters discussed at the summit.
