#LIBERATECRIMEA is an international civil movement for the de-occupation of Crimea and solidarity with the Crimean Tatar people. It is aimed at strengthening the voice of civil society, calling for the cessation of the illegal occupation of Crimea, the flagrant violation of international law and the root cause of the countless human rights violations committed in Crimea since February 2014. The movement was initiated one year ago. During this period, actions were held in Europe, Asia, USA, Canada, Australia in support of the territorial integrity of Ukraine. In October 2018, activists of the movement launched the campaign “United by the Flag - #LIBERATECRIMEA”, within which the national flag of the Crimean Tatar people will travel around the world during 9 months and on June 26, on the day of the Crimean Tatar flag, will return back to Kiev. Today, thousands of people around the world join #LIBERATECRIMEA and show their solidarity with the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar peoples.
