We consider the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol to be parts of Ukraine - Linde

20 January 2021

OSCE Chairwoman Ann Linde in an interview with the European Truth media agency once again stressed that Crimea and Sevastopol are parts of Ukraine, but the organization has not yet decided how it will support the Crimean Platform.

Linde noted that the OSCE considers Crimea and Sevastopol to be parts of Ukraine. Speaking about the Crimean Platform, the head of the organization stressed that she wants to get more information about the initiative.

“Now we want to get more information about this initiative. Today I have already learned something, but we have not yet decided how and how we will support this initiative. However, it is certainly important, because the annexation was illegal. But the main thing for Ukraine is now - to gather broad support for this platform”,- she said.
