The 3rd International Forum of the Crimea Platform Expert Network will be held in Kyiv

Since the summer of last year, the security situation in the Black Sea region has changed: Ukraine’s security and defense forces have inflicted significant losses on the Black Sea fleet of the russian federation and contributed to the restoration of navigation and maritime trade routes. In light of this updated context, the Crimea Platform Expert Network initiated the 3rd International Forum, during which Ukrainian and international experts, as well as government officials, will come together to assess Ukraine’s situation as of the summer of 2024, work out solutions to further reduce russian navy presence, and determine approaches to recovering Ukraine’s economy amid ongoing threats from russia and its satellite states. The forum will be attended by representatives from over 15 countries of the world.

The event will take place as a part of the International Crimea Platform — a mechanism aimed at the de-occupation and reintegration of Crimea, as well as at the restoration of Black Sea, European and global security.
