The only link between the Russian Federation and Crimea is the "Crimean bridge", which Ukraine will probably destroy over time. This was stated by the chairman of the Munich Security Conference, Christoph Heusgen, the Representation of the President of Ukraine in the AR of Crimea reports. Permanent Representative Tamila Tasheva and Head of the Service for the Operation of the Crimean Platform Maria Tomak held a working meeting with him on the sidelines of the Warsaw Security Forum.

The delegation from the Representation informed the German diplomat about the current situation in the temporarily occupied Crimea.

"When someone says that Crimea belongs to Russia (unfortunately, this can still be heard), I always enter into an argument and say that this is not the case, that, in addition to the key arguments, the mainland of Ukraine and Crimea are also very closely connected itself both infrastructurally and economically. On the other hand, only the "Crimean bridge" connects Russia with Crimea, which Ukraine will probably destroy over time," Heusgen said.

The participants discussed potential cooperation in the context of organizing events dedicated to the Crimean Platform within the framework of the annual Munich Security Conference, which is traditionally held in February.

Heusgen noted that he fully supports the idea of ​​the Crimean Platform initiated by the President of Ukraine, its activities and international events. As a former participant in the Minsk negotiation process, he emphasized that "the Minsk agreements were really only about Donbas, but this does not mean that we forgot about the occupied Crimea – we always remembered about it."
