Ukraine makes its own dedicated and systemic efforts by approving strategy for de-occupation and reintegration of Crimea.

Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said this following the approval of the strategy by the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) on Thursday.

"We have approved the Strategy for Deoccupation and Reintegration of Crimea, a historic document needed since 2014. The signal is crystal clear: we do not just call on the world to help us return Crimea; Ukraine makes its own dedicated and systemic efforts under [President] Zelensky's leadership," the Minister wrote on Twitter.

According to the minister, the de-occupation strategy is one of the three pillars of Crimea's return. The pillars also include consolidation (uniting the efforts of all partners on the basis of the Crimean Platform) and synergy (restoration of international law and, as a result, Ukraine’s full sovereignty over the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol).

In turn, NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov said that the strategy for de-occupation and reintegration of the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol will be an open document and will soon be available for review.

It is reported that the strategy would also be translated into English to be provided to international partners.
