The Crimean Platform: possible light in the hybrid tunnel

On February 26th, Ukraine celebrated the “Day of Resistance to the Occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol”. On this day, the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy announced the first meeting of the ambitious "Crimean Platform". However, is this a real game-changer that will help solve issues related to the de-occupation, demilitarisation and reintegration of the peninsula? Will it also help protect the human rights of the Crimean people?

Hybrid deportation from Crimea

In February 2014 troops lacking military insignia invaded Crimea and swiftly took over key military and strategic sites. A referendum was hastily organised, even though it violated Ukrainian law and international norms. The Russian press claimed that 97 per cent of those who voted were in favour of annexation and 83 per cent of the electorate had turned out. While these figures were cited by international news media sources, a report by the President of Russia’s Council on Civil Society and Human Rights (that was posted at the president-sovet.ru web site) showed that only between 15-30 per cent of Crimean citizens voted for unification with Russia. With the bogus referendum swept under the rug, a treaty was signed between the newly proclaimed Republic of Crimea and the Russian Federation to initiate a process of integration.
