27 February 2024 15:42

On February 27, First Deputy Minister Emine Dzhaparova chaired the Fourth video meeting of the International Crimea Platform (ICP) focal points network, which was attended by representatives of nearly 50 states and international organizations.

Opening the meeting, the First Deputy Minister thanked partners for their unwavering support for Ukraine, emphasized the critical importance of continuing it, and stressed the need to increase pressure on Russia to stop its aggression.

«The past two years have dispelled Moscow's calculations that we are weak, that Ukraine will not withstand, and that the world will turn a blind eye to Russian military aggression and attempts to forcefully change borders. I believe we have all learned a harsh lesson over these years – the lack of a decisive response to Russian aggression in 2014 was perceived by the Russian Federation as a sign of weakness. But the aggressor only understands the language of force. It is crucial to understand that our nation requires sustained support. It is important not only to restore stability and security within Ukraine. It is vital to deter Russia from further incursions towards the European continent and from repeating the atrocities, it commits against Ukraine», Emine Dzhaparova said.

Emine Dzhaparova presented the key events and results of the work of the ICP over the past year, including the Third Summit of the International Crimea Platform and the Second Parliamentary Summit. She also informed about plans for 2024, including preparations for the Fourth Summit of the International Crimea Platform, the Third Parliamentary Summit and the Second Black Sea Security Conference.

The participants were also addressed by Director of the International Cooperation and European Integration Department of the Secretariat of the Ukrainian Parliamentary Commissioner for Human Rights Olha Strepochenko, Head of the Crimea Platform Support Service of the Mission of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Maria Tomak, Chair of the Board of the Crimean Human Rights Group, a co-coordinator of the Crimea Platform Expert Network Olha Skrypnyk, representatives of the Prosecutor's Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, Ministry of Defence of Ukraine and the Security Service of Ukraine.

The members of the Crimean Platform's focal points network reaffirmed their support for Ukraine's sovereignty and territorial integrity within its internationally recognized borders and expressed their readiness to provide all necessary support to defeat the aggressor.

For reference: The focal points network of the International Crimea Platform was established in development of the provisions of the Joint Declaration of the Founding Summit of the Platform with the purpose of prompt exchange of positions on topical issues of de-occupation of Crimea, to inform partners about important developments in the temporarily occupied Crimea and to initiate their response to Russia's violation of international law on the peninsula.
