According to the plan agreed with the President, in 2-3 months the National Security Council will propose a strategy for concrete steps to return Crimea, Refat Chubarov, the Ukrainian MP and Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, told a press conference "De-occupation of Crimea: a task for the state and society in 2016".

- And it (strategy - QHA) is more for us, for the Ukrainian society, but it should clearly outline the approaches for cooperation with Western partners. During our trips abroad more than once we discussed with our foreign partners the possibility to unify sanctions against Russia. We also talked about it with the President. We must work together and we believe that creation of a separate international platform is an important step towards it.

According to Chubarov, the state is obliged to take up this burden, currently born by Ukrainian public, and reach an agreement with Western partners, reported a QHA correspondent.
