For Russia, Crimea is a military base, for Ukraine it is a place of diversity.
This was stated by the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (ARC) Tamila Tasheva in an interview with The Atlantic, quoted by NV.
In particular, the official denied any idea that Russia and Ukraine could divide the peninsula.
"As for Crimea, the difference between the two civilizations is striking. For Russia, Crimea is and always will be a military base. For Ukraine, Crimea is a place of diversity," she said.
Tasheva reported that there are already detailed plans for the de-occupation of Crimea, and the Representation is working on the Strategy for the Restoration of Crimea, which envisages a greener and cleaner Crimea.
Tasheva suggests building better communication routes with Europe, restoring destroyed Crimean Tatar monuments, and reviving the use of the Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar languages on the peninsula. And also reform schools and restore independent media. She also told reporters that working groups have already been created to consider the fate of property lost or acquired since 2014.
