Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Igor Zhovkva said that the Crimean Platform summit will take place on August 23, 2021, after which a declaration should appear, as well as a coordinated international toolkit for the de-occupation of Crimea and the protection of the rights of Ukrainians in Crimea. This was reported by the press service of the President's Office.

"The date for the Crimean summit has already been clearly defined - August 23, 2021. The President's office is working together with the Foreign Ministry to prepare appropriate invitations to world leaders, the corresponding concept, the summit program, organizational issues," he said.

Zhovkva noted that the authorities will not hold a summit for the sake of a summit. After the event, according to him, there should be, obviously, a declaration, and more importantly - a coordinated international toolkit for the de-occupation of Crimea and the protection of the rights of Ukrainians in Crimea.
