UkrainianPresident Volodymyr Zelenskyy on Oct. 25 voiced the idea of establishing international platforms for the de-occupation of all currently Russian-occupied territories.

Speaking at the first parliamentary summit of the Crimea Platform in Zagreb, Croatia, he said this platform could be the starting point for the implementation of other projects.

“We should make this format of ours, the format of the Crimea Platform, a starting point for other humanitarian and diplomatic platforms that will promote the de-occupation of other territories that have been enslaved: from Transnistria and Abkhazia, to the northern territories,” he said.

At the same time, he added that the restoration of true peace could begin with the liberation of Ukraine’s Crimean peninsula, which Russia has occupied since 2014.

“The Russian potential for aggression will be completely destroyed when the Ukrainian flag is back in its rightful place – in the cities and villages of Crimea,” the Ukrainian leader said.

“Crimea must be freed from its use by Russia as a bridgehead. Then the world will feel that there will be no more losses.”

“And people will feel that the world is becoming safer.”
