Ukrainian authorities will soon begin preparing a personnel reserve for Crimea, Deputy Prime Minister Iryna Vereshchuk said at an inter-ministerial meeting, the Ministry of Reintegration of Temporarily Occupied Territories reported on its site on Feb. 8.

"Given the inevitability of the deoccupation of Crimea, a number of the Government's Plan provisions need to be updated to reflect current realities," the message reads.

Vereshchuk believes it is the right time to start thinking about personnel for Crimea.

"Law enforcement bodies, justice officials, educators and other civil servants,” she stated.

“In the near future, the relevant departments will be instructed to prepare a personnel reserve for Crime.”

The following issues were also reviewed at the meeting:

  • responsibility for collaborationism,
  • return of Ukrainian property,
  • legal status of colonizers, i.e., Russians who illegally arrived on the peninsula.

"The colonizers must leave, the collaborators will be held accountable under the law, and the property seized by the Russians will be returned to its rightful owners," said Vereshchuk.
