MOSCOW, March 3 – RIA Novosti. Ukraine is not capable of returning Crimea by force, it is impossible to seriously assess the threats of the Ukrainian politician Tatiana Chernovol, Russian military expert Igor Korotchenko told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, the Ukrainian politician, former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Tatiana Chernovol on the air of the Pryamoy TV channel called to be “constantly ready to conduct, literally tomorrow, a military operation to return Crimea.” In her opinion, it is necessary to wait until “processes of turbulence begin in Russia” in order to take advantage of this moment to seize the peninsula by military means.
“What she calls for is impossible, no one will conduct such an operation, neither the Ukrainian army, nor the armed forces of NATO. Crimea is an integral part of Russia. An attack on Crimea is an attack on the Russian Federation,” Korotchenko said.
According to the expert, any country or military bloc that allows this will simply doom itself to destruction.
Korotchenko stressed that it is impossible to seriously assess the words of Chernovol. “A psychiatrist should comment on her condition. It is impossible to seriously discuss it,” he added.
