The statement of the Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba that Germany is ready to become a co-leader in the Crimean platform in the direction of the policy of non-recognition will practically not change the situation around Crimea.

This was stated to QIRIM.News by the international analyst, head of the "Ukrainian Institute of the Future" Ilya Kusa.

According to him, such a statement means nothing more than keeping the Crimea issue at the level it was in 2014.

It is complicated to say anything yet, as there is nothing to make a conclusion of.

"Let’s see what will happen. Germany can increase assistance to Ukraine in one of the areas of the Crimean Platform. In general, this is a good idea, but it is difficult to say how it will be implemented," he said.

Meanwhile, Kusa notes that much depends on Kyiv because if cooperation in the Crimean direction is rational, it can ensure keeping the issue of Crimea regular, at least on the two-sided agenda of relations between Ukraine and Germany.

"If we want Crimea to be mentioned in the European media, we need to increase the number of information messages about it, cooperate with journalists, the media, the European external audience.
If by keeping the issue of Crimea in the international arena, we mean holding some meetings like the Crimean Platform, it's a different kind of work," he said.

As reported by QIRIM.news, Germany is ready to become a co-leader in the Crimean platform in the direction of non-recognition.
