Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin believes that staying loyal to Ukrainian state, as well as just belonging to the Crimean Tatar or Ukrainian nationality, can be treated as a feat in the conditions of Russian occupation of the Crimean peninsula. Klimkin expressed this opinion on his Twitter page.
“To be a Crimean Tartar, a Ukrainian and a patriot in the Crimea is already a feat. Searches and harassment have become something common and normal. Those who are behind this will necessarily be answerable before international courts," he wrote.
Earlier, Klimkin during a meeting in Turkey discussed with the Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu the issue of opening a Ukrainian consulate in Antalya. According to him, the opening of the consulate of Ukraine in Antalya can happen already this year.
