In the Mission of the President Office, a presentation of the work of the working group “De-occupied Crimea: the first steps of the state” was held for representatives of the Prosecutor’s Office of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, the Main Directorate of the Security Service of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, as well as the Main Directorate of the National Police in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea. It was important for us to hear their opinions about the groundwork and to consult on the coverage and communication of the developed proposals of the action plan for the Ukrainian state after the de-occupation of the Crimean Peninsula.
During the meeting, the Mission of the President team presented and discussed the following areas of work in the de-occupied territory of Crimea: restoration of public administration and personnel support, amnesty and lustration, prosecution for international crimes and crimes of national security as a result of occupation, issues of property rights, verification of documents and decisions of occupying courts, citizenship of the Russian Federation in the territory of the de-occupied Crimea, as well as humanitarian policy and demilitarization of the educational and cultural spheres.
The participants of the meeting noted the thoroughness of the work done and a significant number of issues that need to be further worked out. Special attention was drawn to the issue of forming a personnel reserve for the de-occupied Crimea because just to ensure the activities of the pre-trial investigation bodies, the Prosecutor’s Office and the courts, more than ten thousand people are needed, whom the state should look for and prepare for work right now.
Separately, we also discussed the fact that to ensure the restoration of the legal system, it is important to determine the mechanisms for launching the work of the courts.
We are deeply grateful to our colleagues who joined this important discussion! We continue to work for the fastest possible de-occupation and safe, effective reintegration of Ukrainian Crimea.
Together, we will win!
