Quote: “The prospect of the liberation of Crimea shows that it is necessary to start training personnel for Crimea right now: law enforcement agencies, justice workers, educators, and other civil servants. In the near future, the relevant departments will be instructed to prepare a personnel reserve for Crimea.”

Details: The meeting was attended by representatives of the power bloc, Tamila Tasheva, permanent representative of the president in Crimea, Refat Chubarov, chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people, members of the parliament, as well as representatives of public organisations.


Vereshchuk noted that the reintegration of Crimea had numerous features to be considered, including a significant population and a long period of temporary occupation. All this must be considered when developing the legislative framework and during reintegration in practice.

Background: The decree of the President of 24 March 2021 put into effect the decision of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine on the Strategy of Reoccupation and Reintegration of the Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol. The Government decree approved the Action Plan for the implementation of this Strategy in the same year.

  1. This should serve as evidence for Ukraine’s determination to retake the Crimea in the near future. I’m confident that these people will not be hired and trained for nothing.

    • People returning to their neighborhoods will need some time too.
      Interesting side note. In the Volyn region today there was a ROC that voluntarily deported themselves. As you know there hasn’t even been any fighting there but the locals finally chased them back home. Notably, literally everything including the toilet was stolen from the church when they left.

      • No surprise there, Red. I’m waiting for the news that the cockroaches haven’t stolen anything when they get chased off.
