Earlier, the Kyiv State City Administration hosted the OUTLOOK WORLD CULTURE FESTIVAL, which gathered the culture, traditions and customs of various nations of the world, including the Crimean Tatar.
A day later in Lviv the Festival of the Crimea took place. The event was organized by the internally displaced activists from the GO "Ray of Change".
The main goal of the event was to remind the society about the problem of annexation of the Crimean peninsula, which in the course of time recedes into the background, as well as to debunk the myths that Crimea never had anything Ukrainian, due to which the current political situation has developed.
