At the Crimean Platform summit in August, Ukraine and its partners want to assess the efficiency of sanctions imposed on Russia and agree on the basic principles of sanctions policy over Crimea.

"While preparing for the Crimean Platform summit in August this year, we pay close attention to the issue of sanctions. Together with our partners, we intend to make efforts to assess the efficiency of Crimean sanctions, agree on the basic principles of sanctions policy over Crimea and close the loopholes used by the Kremlin," First Deputy Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Emine Dzheppar said in an interview with Interfax-Ukraine.

In this context, Dzheppar said that the sanctions policy had been one of the issues discussed during a conversation with U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Kara McDonald about Crimea and the Crimean Platform last week.

Crimean Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to improve the efficiency of the international response to the occupation of Crimea, respond to growing security challenges, step up international pressure on Russia, prevent further human rights violations, protect victims of the occupying power and to achieve the de-occupation of Crimea and its return to Ukraine.

Crimean Platform is expected to operate at the level of heads of state and government, foreign ministers, in the dimension of inter-parliamentary cooperation and expert network.

Ukraine is actively inviting world countries to take part in the Crimean Platform activities.

The Crimean Platform is to be launched officially at an inaugural summit in Kyiv in August 2021.
