The press release issued by the President of Ukraine on 17 December 2022.
The Office of Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, on behalf of the Head of State, is working on developing bills to protect the rights of Ukrainian citizens in the temporarily occupied territories, launching new initiatives to support the indigenous peoples of Ukraine, expanding the geography of the Crimea Platform, as well as strengthening sanctions pressure on the Russian Federation in view of Crimea issues.
After the beginning of the full-scale invasion of Russia, the Office of Representative of the President of Ukraine in Crimea continued working effectively on the implementation of the Strategy of De-occupation and Reintegration of Crimea despite the effect of martial law and heavy criminal shelling by the occupiers, who are trying to leave Ukrainians without electricity and heat.
In addition, by his decree, the Head of State created a national office of the Crimea Platform on the basis of the Office of Representative and instructed to start work on the development of the internal track of the Crimea Platform.
In just one year of its existence, the Crimea Platform managed to raise the issue of de-occupation of Crimea to a much higher international level and prevent the world from forgetting that the Russian Federation’s war against Ukraine began with Crimea and will end in Crimea.
By order of the President, a clear and detailed plan of priority steps for the reintegration of Crimea is being developed, which include the restoration of the functioning of public authorities, the prosecution of collaborators, amnesty and lustration, verification of documents and review of illegal decisions of occupation courts. A vision of the economic recovery of Crimea after its de-occupation, which is filled with clear projects, has been separately shaped.
“The main message we are trying to convey now is that de-occupation is not just about liberating territories, but primarily about our people who live there. It is important for us that they know: you have not been forgotten, and every day we are bringing our victory closer for you. De-occupation is only a matter of time, which is why we are actively working with international partners and organizations, diplomats, ambassadors and parliamentarians to be ready. We are ready to restore our Ukrainian Crimea,” Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Tamila Tasheva said.
The Office of the President congratulates the Office of Representative of the President of Ukraine in Crimea on the 30th anniversary of its establishment. Let the Office celebrate its 31st anniversary in its native office – in the free Ukrainian city of Simferopol!
Crimea is Ukraine! Ukraine will win!
