On May 18, the anniversary of the deportation of the Crimean Tatar people, the Bulgarian capital of Sofia will host a meeting of the Council of Europe’s Committee of Ministers, at which Crimea will be high on the agenda, Dmytro Kuleba, Ambassador at Large of Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, told a news briefing commemorating the 72nd anniversary of the Crimean Tatars’ deportation.
Acording to Kuleba, the meeting will be attended by Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin.
“There is no doubt that the subject of Crimea will not be merely mentioned but discussed in detail during our address and bilateral meetings scheduled to be held at the event,” Kuleba said.
Kuleba also said that an interactive dialogue focusing on human rights violations in Crimea will be held at the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva on June 29, 2016.
“We will keep Crimea high on our foreign policy agenda since it is a matter of national security to Ukraine. Therefore, we need to protect it, including defending occupied Crimea,” said Kuleba.
Just a reminder: after a rigged referendum of March 16, Russia occupied Crimea in February-March 2014. Most of the world did not recognize Russia’s jurisdiction over Crimea, while to Ukraine Crimea remains a temporarily occupied territory.
