NATO Secretary General, Jens Stoltenberg, will take part in the summit of the Crimean Platform, which will be held on August 23.

This is discussed on the website of the Alliance.

The summit will be held in a virtual format. Stoltenbergʼs speech is scheduled for 14:50 Kyiv time. The Secretary Generalʼs speech will also be broadcast on NATOʼs official website.

Last year, NATO was represented by Deputy Secretary General, Mircea Joane. Then he personally came to Kyiv.

Not only 48 member states of the "Crimean Platform", but also representatives of the states of Asia, Latin America, and Africa will be invited to the summit on August 23.

  • The "Crimean Platform" is an international consultative and communication mechanism, the ultimate goal of which is the de-occupation of Crimea and its return to the control of Ukraine. "Crimean Platform" will work on several levels. The first is the highest political level to which foreign heads of state will join. The second is the level of heads of foreign affairs and ministers of defense. The third is the interparliamentary level. And the fourth is the level of experts. Last year, representatives of 46 countries took part in the summit.
