Britain hopes to cooperate with Ukraine in developing Crimean Platform

The United Kingdom hopes to cooperate with Ukraine as it develops the international Crimean Platform to promote the de-occupation of the peninsula, according to Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for European Neighbourhood and the Americas Wendy Morton.

She wrote this on her Twitter account, according to Ukrinform.

"Looking forward to working with Ukraine as it develops the International Crimean Platform in response to Russia's annexation of the region. Good to talk with [Ukraine's First Deputy Foreign Minister] Emine Dzheppar on this crucial area today. The UK will not accept Russia's illegal annexation. Crimea is Ukraine," Morton tweeted.

The Crimean Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to improve the effectiveness of the international response to the occupation of Crimea, respond to security challenges, increase international pressure on Russia, prevent further human rights violations and protect victims of the occupation regime, and to achieve the main goal of de-occupying Crimea and returning it to Ukraine.

The first Crimean Platform summit is scheduled for August 23, 2021.
