The participants of the Crimea Platform called upon the occupying Russian administration in Crimea to immediately stop repressions, human rights violations of Ukrainians and Tatars of Crimea, unsolicited searches, arrests, tortures and other cruel, inhumane or humiliating treatment or punishment and other forms of political pressure, systematic "filtration" and full-scale forcible deportation of Ukrainians, including children.

The participants of the platform also stated that they will never recognize the attempt to illegally annex the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol as well as of Donetsk, Kherson, Luhansk and Zaporizhzhia Oblasts of Ukraine, as it grossly violates international law, including the UN Statute, and is a direct threat to international security with serious consequences for international law and order.

The statement includes the call upon Russia to stop attacking the critically important Ukrainian civil energy infrastructure, which is causing a humanitarian disaster. The participants expressed their worries concerning the nuclear safety and security consequences of Russia’s illegal invasion of Ukraine.
