The first summit of the Crimean platform starts in Ukraine on August 23. The event will be attended by a number of leaders of states and heads of Churches. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba called on all interested countries to join the work.

Focusing on human rights? Welcome. Freedom of navigation? Come on in. International security, religious freedom, Environment, International Humanitarian Law? Welcome, Kuleba wrote. This is reported by Channel 24.

Earlier, EU High Representative Josep Borrel agreed to take part in the Crimean platform summit. European Council President Charles Michel will also arrive in Kyiv. Borrel expressed hope that as many UN member states as possible will join the event.

The Crimean platform is a new consultative format initiated by Ukraine. The primary goal is to increase the international response to the occupation of Crimea. In particular, it refers to pressure on Russia, as well as the protection of the rights of victims of the occupation regime.
