According to him, it is necessary to stick to the policy of non-recognizing peninsula's annexation and pressing with sanctions. And the whole civilized world must be united and show solidarity in this respect.
"We should work with all countries, international organizations, politicians, civil society in order to put firm pressure on Russia to prevent the violation of human rights and establish a permanent monitoring," the head of the Foreign Ministry noted.
Klimkin also deems it necessary "to put pressure on Russia in the framework of maritime law conventions, the Convention for the Suppression of the Financing of Terrorism as well as to assist the Ukrainian companies that appeal to the relevant arbitration in compensating for their losses caused by the temporary occupation of Crimea."
Speaking about the information component, Klimkin said that since the people in Crimea are now under a "massive influence of Russia's propaganda," Ukraine must show them that their future is connected with the European democratic Ukraine and not with Crimea under a "temporary Russian occupation, where they can only go to nowhere."
