Details: The official stated that the summit's primary goal is to bring together all the speakers of parliaments and representatives of their countries.

Details: The Czech Parliament speaker stressed that Crimea is a part of Ukraine, so it is necessary to reiterate loudly that "we adhere to international law, and there are no changes in this regard".

Commenting on the most realistic scenario for the liberation of Crimea, the speaker said, "first of all, Ukraine must win the war".

"I am absolutely sure that it is necessary to win the war as this is the first step towards this, then to have a chance to liberate the Crimean Peninsula as well as all Ukrainian territories," the official said.

Background: Pekarová Adamová also said she was disappointed with the stance of Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán and Hungarians towards Ukraine.
