Kremlin-controlled representatives of the Russian-occupied Crimea tried to register for the Crimean Platform summit , but were denied.
This was stated by the head of the working group on international legal issues at the Permanent Representation of the occupiers of the Crimea, Alexander Molokhov in a comment to RIA Novosti .
“The organizers of the Crimean Platform have decided not to notice my application for participation in their event as a speaker, which should be regarded as a refusal,” Molokhov said.
He called the summit “a propaganda sabbath of Russophobic witches on the banks of the Dnieper.”
The Russian stated that he wanted to talk at the summit about the alleged sabotage of the Ukrainian government, the blockade of water supply and outrage at the sanctions. He called the occupation of the Ukrainian peninsula a “myth of Ukrainian propaganda.”
Crimean platform – what is known about it
The Crimean Platform initiative will work on several levels. The first, the highest, is political, and it will be joined by heads of foreign states and governments. The second is the level of heads of foreign ministries and defense ministers, the third is the level of inter-parliamentary, and the fourth is the level of non-governmental experts. It is envisaged to create an expert network to enhance the effectiveness of the state, as well as to attract additional intellectual resources to the work of the platform.

The summit envisages a main meeting and four thematic panels: on non-recognition of the attempt to annex Crimea, on the militarization of the Azov-Black Sea region, on ways to reintegrate Crimea through human rights and sustainable development, and on restoring the rights of the Crimean Tatar people.
40 countries and international organizations have already confirmed their participation in the Crimean Platform summit.
