During the panel “Militarization of Crimea: Challenges for the Region”, Mykhailo Gonchar, President of the Centre for Global Studies Strategy XXI, drew attention to the application of international law to counter the militarization of the entire Black Sea region by Russia, in particular, concerning the abuse of international standards SOLAS-74 (closure of waters for navigation)  by Russia and the lack of response by the Spanish Government as coordinator of the Mediterranean and Black Sea navigation zones.

How to release the Kremlin's hostages is an issue that is a challenge for human security in the Black Sea region. The participants in the Lviv Security Forum drew attention to Russia's torture and non-compliance with international law, international humanitarian law and bilateral agreements.
