Government members to head U.S. delegation to Crimean Platform summit

The U.S. delegation to the Crimean Platform summit will be headed by the government members.

"The delegation membership is determined by the White House, and we have not yet publicly announced who will lead the delegation, but they are members of the government. We informed the government of Ukraine who they are, but I will not name specific names until the membership is officially announced," Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for European and Eurasian Affairs George Kent, who heads the U.S. diplomatic mission in Ukraine during the vacation of Chargé d'Affaires Kristina Kvien, said in an interview with Suspilne.

As reported, the Crimean Platform is a new consultative and coordination format initiated by Ukraine to step up the efficiency of international response to the occupation of Crimea, respond to growing security challenges, increase international pressure on Russia, prevent further human rights violations, protect victims of the occupation regime, and achieve the main goal: to de-occupy Crimea and return it to Ukraine.

The Crimean Platform activities are to begin at the summit on August 23, to which diplomats and leaders of foreign states are invited.
