Post event report : Strong sea - resistance on Crimea had the honor of participating in the conference organized by the Federal Agency for Civic Education (Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung) focusing on shedding light on the political, cultural, and social realities of Crimea amidst Russia's ten-year occupation. The event, titled "Strong Sea: Resistance on the Crimea" [Starkes Meer - widerstand auf der Krym], convened on April 20, 2024, at the Berlin State Library.

At the heart of the discussions were eminent figures such as Tamila Tasheva, the Crimean representative of the Ukrainian President; Rory Finnin, Professor of Ukrainian Studies at the University of Cambridge; Wilfred Jilge, an Eastern European historian and lecturer at the University of Leipzig; and the revered Crimean Tatar human rights activist and politician, Mustafa Dzhemilev.

Anastasia Levkova also graced the event with insights from her latest novel, "Behind Perekop Lies Land”.

Beyond historical reflections, the conference fervently addressed the ongoing challenges faced by the occupied Crimea, including cultural erasure and human rights violations against indigenous nations of Crimean Peninsula.

It's imperative to amplify these voices and stand in solidarity against the injustices plaguing Crimea.
