DISINFO: The US, NATO, and intelligence services of the UK are behind Crimean Platform


Ukraine needs Crimea only as a bone of contention and political tool. Kyiv's project to get back the peninsula is an illusion.

Crimean Platform summit is the place where the West supports neo-Nazis and the racist moods of modern Ukrainian authorities. Behind the summit are the US, NATO, and intelligence services of the United Kingdom.


Recurring pro-Kremlin disinformation narrative about the illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and Ukraine being a 'puppet of the West'.

Russia is an occupying power in Crimea, a fact already recognised by the UN General Assembly, PACE, the EU, the International Criminal Court, and other international organisations and states.

No international body recognises the so-called referendum in Crimea. The UN General Assembly adopted a resolution entitled “Territorial integrity of Ukraine”, stating that the referendum in Crimea was not valid and could not serve as a basis for any change in the status of the peninsula. On 17 December 2018, the UN General Assembly confirmed its non-recognition of the illegal annexation of Crimea.

The Crimean Platform is a consultative and coordination format for the de-occupation of Crimea. In the summit are participating 44 countries and the representatives of the European Commission, NATO, Council of Europe, and GUAM. There is no evidence to support the fact that behind the summit could be "the intelligence service of the United Kingdom" or any other secret services.
