SIMFEROPOL, March 12 – RIA Novosti. Ukraine's plan to regain control over Crimea, consisting of “three whales”, is part of a provocation planned at the “instigation of Western curators”, said Permanent Representative of Crimea to the President of Russia, Deputy Prime Minister of the republic Georgy Muradov in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba called “three pillars” of the policy, thanks to which Kiev hopes to return Crimea: this is the strategy of “de-occupation” and reintegration adopted by the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC), consolidation, that is, joining the efforts of all partners, and synergy – ” restoration of international law “and full sovereignty of Kiev over the peninsula.
“The provocation, planned by Kiev at the instigation of Western curators, is gaining momentum. To assess the level of danger that the people of Ukraine will find themselves in when continuing this crazy course prescribed in the” strategy “, you just need to read the Russian Constitution, our military doctrine and the statements of the leadership of our country about the fate of Ukrainian statehood as a result of encroachments on the territorial integrity of Russia and the lives of our compatriots, “Muradov said.
According to him, the consistent movement of Ukraine to the brink of the abyss should cause, at least, feelings of anxiety among sensible forces in countries intending to support this anti-Russian provocation.
Muradov expressed the hope that Europe and Turkey, which, according to him, “are actively encouraged to take part in a clash with Russia,” will have a sense of self-preservation. “Although it is possible that the experiment to incite the Ukrainian-Russian clashes will continue for some time. But when the fire begins to flare up, I am sure that Kiev will remain alone, and itself will clean up the mess it has made. it's too late to think about it in Ukraine, “the permanent representative said.
Crimea became a Russian region after a referendum held there in March 2014, in which 96.77% of Crimean voters and 95.6% of Sevastopol residents spoke in favor of joining Russia. Ukraine still considers Crimea to be its own, but temporarily occupied territory. The Russian leadership has repeatedly stated that the inhabitants of the peninsula, in a democratic way, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter, voted for reunification with Russia. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Crimea issue is “finally closed.”
The summit of the “Crimean Platform”, at which Kiev plans to discuss the issue of returning Crimea, is scheduled for 23 August. The Ukrainian side offered to join the platform to a number of states, including Turkey, France, Great Britain, Germany, Canada and the United States.
