Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba considers the creation of the Crimean Platform as an unconditional victory of Ukraine.
He said this during his speech in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on September 10, UA reports.
“The issue of Crimea has been brought to the highest international level for the first time in many years. For the first time we have a real mechanism that leads to the de-occupation of the peninsula” – the minister noted.
Kuleba said that the Crimean platform began to work at three levels: government, parliamentary and expert.
“The Crimean platform will become the driver of many important national decisions in Ukraine and abroad, which will bring the day of the de-occupation of Crimea closer” – the Foreign Minister noted.
Kuleba noted that the battle for Crimea is a battle for Ukraine.
“Crimea is a test that determines the rules of the game and the future order of the world in the 21st century. But the answer to the question: “What will decide the fate of countries and millions of people – brute military force or global cooperation?” – should give not only in Kyiv, but also in other capitals of the world. And we can get this answer together with you – elected officials” – he said.
Kuleba also commented on Russia’s reaction to the holding of the Crimean platform.
“The reaction of Moscow shows that the Crimean platform poses a real threat to Russia’s intentions to continue the occupation. The Kremlin has taken a direct revenge and intimidation. Such emotional actions of Russia confirm the moral defeat of Moscow, and the number of participants in the Crimean platform – the defeat of its diplomacy. Dear members of parliament, the Crimean Platform is an unconditional victory for Ukraine” – Kuleba added.
