FRIENDS OF CRIMEA : WHO WE ARE

The idea of the creation of the Association was introduced by the foreign politics and public personalities during the II Yalta international economic forum in April 2016. Therefore, Friends of Crimea Association was established as an informal public association on the 6th of November, 2017 in Yalta, Republic of Crimea.

  • to support respecting political, economic, social and humanitarian rights of peoples;
  • to stop an imposed upon the world information war that leads to fueling conflicts, growing threats and international crisis;
  • to acknowledge the legitimacy of the all-Crimean referendum of 2014 and the rights of the Crimean people to determine its future;
