Crimea Platform
The Crimea Platform is an initiative of the Ukrainian authorities aimed at actualizing the issue of the de-occupation of the peninsula on the international agenda.

The first summit took place in 2021 when a joint declaration of the Crimea Platform participants was adopted. Representatives from 43 countries took part in the meeting.

The main goal of the Crimea Platform is to consolidate international efforts to de-occupy Crimea, protect the rights and freedoms of the population of the peninsula, as well as strengthen security in Europe and at the global level.
