President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has arrived in Saudi Arabia, the presidential press service has said.
"I have arrived in Saudi Arabia. I will speak at the Arab League summit. I will meet Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman Al-Saud and hold other bilateral talks," it said.
The president noted the following priorities: the return of all political prisoners of Crimea and the temporarily occupied territories, the return of all prisoners and illegally deported persons, the presentation of our peace formula, the implementation of which should involve as many states as possible, and the guarantee of energy security next winter.
"Another priority is to protect the Muslim community of Ukraine. Mustafa Dzhemilyev, the leader of the Crimean Tatar people, is with us. Crimea was the first to suffer from the Russian occupation, and most of those who are being repressed in occupied Crimea are Muslims," the press service said.
On 18 May, the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry called on the world to recognise the deportation of Crimean Tatars in 1944 as genocide. The Ukrainian diplomatic office also called on Russia to stop human rights violations in Crimea and immediately release all political prisoners.
