The strategy of the President’s team of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky for reintegration of Crimea and Donbass is futile. This was stated by member of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs of the Republic of Crimea Sergey Tsekov, reports RT.
According to him, attempts by the team Zelensky to return the Peninsula to the Ukrainian jurisdiction, nor lead to nothing. Tsekov said that the Ukrainian government should focus on improving relations with Russia and resolving the situation in Donbas.
Earlier, Deputy speaker of the Parliament of the Peninsula Vladimir Bobkov called the strategy for the return of Crimea to Ukraine as an act of populism. “All this is the irony. They need strategies to write and to show that Ukraine is ready to cease fire in the zone of differentiation with the [unrecognized] Donetsk and Luhansk people’s republics, but also ready to build civilized relations with the Russian Crimea”, — he said.
On August 15, Deputy Director of the office of the President of Ukraine Ruslan Ryaboshapka said about the early development of the strategy for the return of the Peninsula under Ukrainian jurisdiction. “Territory of Donbass and Crimea is not just the land that we need to return. The Ukrainians, living on it that we need to establish a life together after five years of gap, 1.4 million internally displaced persons. And a lot of problems,” he said.
Crimea became part of Russia following a referendum held in March 2014. Ukraine and several other countries believe that Russia is the occupier, Moscow all charges in the address rejects.
Part of Donbass is out of control in Kiev as a result of armed conflict. In April 2014, the Ukrainian government began a military operation against the breakaway republics of Donbass, who declared their independence from Kiev after the change of the Central government.
