SIMFEROPOL (Sputnik) — The deputy prime minister added that the meetings would be carried out as part of Crimea's international cooperation program.

"We plan to hold a series of meetings with foreign expat communities, with compatriots. We talk about the events of such level and format with the Ukrainian expat community … We will definitely cooperate with the Ukrainians living in different countries around the world," Muradov told Sputnik Radio, without specifying the dates of those meetings.
