Crimea is and was a part of Ukraine, and after its liberation it will become part of the EU, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated at the summit of the Crimean platform on Aug 23.

Zelenskyy has said that Russia's war against Ukraine should end with the liberation of Crimea, just as it began in 2014 with the Ukrainian peninsula’s occupation by Russia.

According to him, a legislative foundation is being created for the restoration of Crimea after its liberation.

Zelenskyy added that the Russian invaders, who are using Ukraine’s Crimea as a military base, threaten the security of the Black Sea region, all of Europe, and global stability.
