The next Parliamentary Summit of the Crimea Platform will be held in Prague on October 24.
“I am glad that we agreed with the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine and its chairman Ruslan Stefanchuk that Prague will be the venue for the second meeting of this initiative on October 24,” Speaker of the Chamber of the Deputies of the Czech Republic Markéta Pekarová Adamová said at the Conference of the Speakers of EU Parliaments in Prague.
According to her, the Platform is an important forum that helps spread information about the situation in occupied Crimea.
“It sends a clear signal to the international community that changing borders by force is absolutely unacceptable”, Pekarová Adamová emphasized.
Pekarová also received the Order of Prince Yaroslav the Wise from Ukrainian Supreme Council head Ruslan Stefanchuk for her exceptional personal efforts to strengthen the cooperation between Ukraine and the Czech Republic and support for Ukraine.
The order was awarded to her by President Volodymyr Zelenskiy.
The Crimea Platform summit was held for the first time in Zagreb, Croatia, last year, and was attended by then-Speaker of the US House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi.
Pekarova Adamova called at the time for the establishment of an international tribunal for the crimes of aggression against Ukraine, arguing that the perpetrators must be punished and Russian President Vladimir Putin and his associates prosecuted.
Delegations from more than 50 countries and institutions were invited to participate in the event.
