The Mission of the President of Ukraine in the AR of Crimea strongly condemns any so-called «international events”, held by the occupying authorities in violation of the rules of Ukrainian legislation, including generally recognized principles and rules of the international law in the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol City (Ukraine).

In November, the occupying authorities plan to hold the so-called “yearly international conference” themed “Crimea in the modern international context” with the participation of the representatives of the foreign states. The Russian Federation and the occupying administration of Crimea once again use such events for promotion the recognition of the annexation attempt of the Ukrainian Crimea among the international community.

We call on the foreign citizens to respect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders and reiterate that violation of the Ukrainian law on the visits of the temporarily occupied territory incurs administrative and criminal liability.

Regarding the visit of the Crimean collaborates to Turkey

On the visit of the Crimean collaborators to Turkey, the Mission of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea requests to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine to undertake necessary measures with the foreign partners towards avoiding the involvement of the collaborators into the international events and prevention the recognition of the attempted annexation of the AR of Crimea and Sevastopol City by the Russian Federation at the international level.

We are also confident that the law enforcement agencies of Ukraine will properly assess the actions of the collaborators under the existing or new criminal procedures.


“It is through youth we can return Crimea”, said Anton Korynevych

The biggest challenge in Crimea is freedom of speech, opinion and self-identity. Every day living under pressure, we feel no longer to express what we think, feel. Residing in Crimea, we, indeed, for the entire world, agree with the silent occupation. We simply cannot utter what we think because the center “E” comes and knocks on the door for tomorrow, and nobody can be ready for this…”, one of the members of the all Ukrainian youth forum “The world through the youth’s eyes”,  wrote in his questionnaire. The Forum has launched today in Irpin city, near Kyiv ““It is through youth we can return Crimea”, said Anton Korynevych”
