Zelensky highlighted the successful Ukrainian drone and missile attacks on Russian bases in Crimea. The Russian fleet will “gradually escape from Crimea.”
The International Crimean Platform Summit began in Prague. Representatives from more than 50 countries are participating in the conference, and it aims to return the Crimean Peninsula, which Russia annexed in 2014, to Ukraine.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called in a video message for the “complete evacuation” of his country’s territory. The more countries stand with Ukraine, the sooner Russian aggression can be ended. He called on participants to take additional measures to circumvent Western sanctions against Russia and to take action against Russian propaganda.
The International Crimean Platform was established in the summer of 2021 at the initiative of President Zelensky. This plan aims to bring together and coordinate all existing national and international efforts to “return the Crimean Peninsula.”
The first edition of the parliamentary summit was held last October in Zagreb, Croatia.
“The Russian fleet is gradually fleeing the Crimean Peninsula”
In addition to most EU countries, representatives from the United Kingdom, Canada and Sierra Leone also sent delegates to the summit in Prague. President of the Bundestag Barbel Pass (SPD) traveled to the Czech Republic and is heading to Germany.
Other countries, such as Australia, Japan, New Zealand and the United States, will address the summit via video message.
Zelensky highlighted the successful Ukrainian drone and missile attacks on Russian bases in Crimea. The Russian fleet will “gradually escape from Crimea.” He pointed to Russian plans to establish a new naval base in the breakaway region of Abkhazia from Georgia on the eastern coast of the Black Sea. “We’ll get them there too,” he threatened.
At the same time as the conference, the Czech Interior Ministry and the police reported hacking attacks on their websites, which were temporarily unavailable. It was initially unclear whether there was a connection to the Czech Republic’s role as host.
