In Spain, as well as in the Spanish-speaking media of Latin America countries – Argentina, Panama, Ecuador, Honduras, Chile, Venezuela – a whole series of publications with reference to the Spanish news agency EFE, devoted to occupied Crimea, quoting the Permanent Representative of the President of Ukraine in the Autonomous Republic of Crimea Tamila Tasheva and the Office of the Crimea Platform, appeared.
The articles highlight the issue of the colonialist policy of the Russian Federation and the transformation of the occupied Crimea into a Russian military base, which gives the aggressor country the opportunity to advance on the mainland of Ukraine and poses a threat to world security. Also, the leitmotif of the publications was the uncompromising nature of the Ukrainian state and President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyi regarding the territorial integrity of Ukraine within its internationally recognized borders of 1991.
The topic of occupied Crimea was picked up by Spanish social networks, where more than a hundred tweets have already appeared with reposts of news and a discussion of the situation on the peninsula in the context of its role in the full-scale invasion of Russia, as well as from historical retrospect’s perspective because this is already the third attempt by Moscow to colonize the peninsula.
This excitement in the Spanish-speaking media once again shows the need to strengthen the dialogue with the countries of the Global South because, as we can see, there is an attention to the Crimean issue in this region. It is Crimea that can become a bridge to understanding with Ukraine’s partners from among the countries of the Global South.
