The international community, including international organizations, parliamentary assemblies, and the overwhelming majority of national governments, has remained firm in its condemnation of the illegal occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol by the Russian Federation and as such, must not recognize the outcome of the so-called “elections” held in four Crimean single mandate constituencies by the Russian occupation authorities.

UWC condemns further build-up by Russian Federation of military technology in Crimea and escalation of military activity in Eastern Ukraine

The Ukrainian World Congress (UWC) calls the attention of the international community to the continued build-up by the Russian Federation of significant military technology in Crimea and the escalation of military activity in Eastern Ukraine.

Crimea is a very strategic location from which the Russian Federation can further pursue its imperialist ambitions. In a new military doctrine announced at the end of 2014, the Russian Federation elevated Crimea into one of its three main geopolitical priorities. As the Russian Federation continues to fortify its control over information and pursue the militarization of Crimea, the local population will continue to be more and more isolated, and extremely vulnerable.
