First Deputy Minister of Information Policy Emine Dzheppar said in an interview with Ukrinform, Censor.NET reports.
"The latest figures in a poll in Ukraine regarding Crimea, which I saw, indicate that many people do not question the fact that Crimea is Ukraine. But almost half of the Ukrainian society - 47 percent - do not consider it necessary to return the peninsula," she said.
"It's actually a terrible figure, because if Ukraine today fails to be the main advocate of Crimea's return, we can not ask the international community to help. Therefore, it should become a social inquiry in Ukraine today. Every Ukrainian should know and understand why we must return Crimea and should be interested in it. Only after that should we appeal to our international partners with the same message," the official stated.
