(ANSA) – BRUSSELS, AUGUST 23 – “Italy supports this initiative and Ukraine without hesitation. Italy has always condemned the occupation of Crimea and we are concerned about the worsening of human rights in the peninsula and the injustices towards the Tatar community: the struggle for Crimea is part of the struggle to liberate Ukraine “. This was stated by Prime Minister Mario Draghi speaking at the ongoing Crimea conference in Ukraine.

“On the second anniversary of the International Platform for Crimea – said the Prime Minister – I would like to express Italy’s firm support for this initiative and for Ukraine. Russia’s occupation of the Crimean peninsula in March 2014 was an unacceptable act of aggression, a clear violation of international law.

Italy has consistently condemned Russia’s illegal annexation of Crimea and Moscow’s gradual militarization of the peninsula. We are deeply concerned about the worsening of the human rights situation on the peninsula and we stand by the Crimean Tatar community, against the violence and injustice it suffers from.

The struggle for Crimea is part of the struggle for the liberation of Ukraine “.

“Last February – continued Draghi – Russian forces used Crimea to launch their attack on the southern regions of Ukraine, including Kherson. They continue to use Crimea to exert military pressure on other areas, in particular on port cities. of Mykolaiv and Odessa. Faced with attempts by Russia to subdue other parts of the Ukrainian territory, the international community cannot turn away “. (HANDLE).
