Russia’s unprovoked and unjustified military aggression against Ukraine destroyed the security system in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov region. In order to find an effective toolkit to respond to these challenges and provide opportunities for sustainable development to all peaceful countries of the region, Ukraine initiated the First Black Sea Security Conference which will be held jointly with Romania in Bucharest on 12-13 April. This was reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine.
The event will take place within the framework of the International Crimea Platform – a mechanism aimed at the de-occupation of Crimea, restoration of Black Sea, European, and global security.
Organisers of the conference: Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania, Ministry of National Defence of Romania, in partnership with the Centre for Defence Strategies (Ukraine).
“The event will be attended by ministers of foreign affairs and ministers of defence, heads of international institutions, government officials and independent experts representing the participants of the International Crimea Platform. They will analyse the multidimensional impact of Russia’s full-scale war against Ukraine on the security situation in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov region and the world, discuss a possible strategy for responding to challenges and threats, as well as the foundations of the future configuration of the security system in the region. Issues of information warfare and cyberattacks will also be in the spotlight,” the diplomats said.
