“This resolution confirms that Crimea is and will be Ukrainian and the territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol are integral parts of Ukraine”, Anton Korynevych notes.
The world is now facing great challenges. The virus that spreads around the world does not choose its victims by nationality, color, sex, or age. The consequences of the pandemic are already being felt. But for Ukraine it is also a challenge and a great test, because all of this we are experiencing against the background of the war and occupation of part of our territories, and the impossibility of the Ukrainian health system to provide assistance to citizens in the occupied territories.
The Russian Federation occupied the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol implementing its legislation and healthcare system throughout the peninsula. This resulted mainly in negative consequences for quality and accessibility to medicine in Crimea. The occupying authorities systematically withhold reliable information on humanitarian situation in the peninsula; do not allow access of humanitarian and human rights missions to the peninsula not to inform the international community on the current situation and the measures to prevent the occurrence and spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the occupied Crimea. That is why it is very important for Crimeans to take care of themselves and their families by taking responsibility for their own health and life “Dear Crimeans!”
