“Assuming that we accept the equipment, they can lay a ship hidden explosive devices, as did the Germans and Italians after the Second world war. They brewed the bomb in the building, and at the right time blew up,” he said, remembering the explosion on the battleship “Novorossiysk” in 1955 in Sevastopol. Then, according to one version, during the transfer of the ship, the Commission found a blank bulkhead in the bow of the ship, which was a powerful explosive charge.
“Professional group needs to thoroughly examine the condition of equipment — to take it or not”, — concluded the General.

On 28 October he suggested that Russia fulfills “the operation to seize important state objects” with the help of submarines black sea fleet.
Putin on January 11 offered to return the Ukrainian military equipment left over on the Peninsula. Then he noted that the vehicles are “in poor condition”. In response, the Ukrainian Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman said that Moscow, along with military equipment can be returned and the Crimea.
