First Deputy Foreign Minister of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar said this in an interview with Ukrinform.
“Our principled position is that the Russian Federation, as an occupying power, bearing full responsibility for the occupation and its consequences, should be invited to the Crimean Platform,” Dzheppar said.
According to her, invitations to the Summit participants have not been sent yet.
“We have not sent invitations to participate in the Summit so far. We are consulting with partners on the formats and content of the Crimean Platform and its inaugural Summit,” Dzheppar noted.
As reported by Ukrinform, President Volodymyr Zelensky presented a concept of the international Crimean Platform to the UN on September 23 and invited international partners to join the initiative for de-occupation of Crimea. During the Ukraine-EU Summit on October 6, the European Union confirmed its readiness for sun an initiative. Ukraine is coordinating this issue at the level of national governments of EU states.
The Crimean Platform summit will take place in Kyiv in May 2021.
