Ukraine did the right thing to raise diplomatic and political awareness to the question of Crimean occupation.

This was stated by the Ambassador of the European Union to Ukraine Matti Maasikas in an interview with "Rubrika".

He praised the holding of the Crimean Platform summit, and called it "extremely important".

"Having spent the first 25 years of my life in occupied Estonia, I can clearly remember that most Western countries did not accept the accession of the Baltic States to the Soviet Union. I remember what that meant. Heads and diplomats of these countries could not officially visit the Soviet Baltic republics, that's it," he said.
