The head of the Crimean parliament Konstantinov declared enough grouping to protect the region
SIMFEROPOL, January 20 – RIA Novosti. The head of the regional parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov, said that a sufficient military group has been formed in Crimea to protect the region.
Pentagon Deputy Spokesperson Sabrina Singh said the United States would support Ukraine, including a possible operation to seize Crimea.
“We will not allow them to do this. The front has stabilized, the situation in Crimea is quite reliable. We have enough groupings for some emergency measures. The Crimeans rely on the armed forces, the Black Sea Fleet, so we are quite reliably protected in this regard … Crimea takes its own life. “Crimea is developing, businesses are operating. Just yesterday I was on the isthmus (border with the Kherson region – ed.), everything is calm there too. “Excessive force for the defense of Crimea,” he said.
According to him, if Washington and Kyiv decide to increase the risks and try to attack the Crimea, then everything will move to another dimension.
“Special ops will stop very quickly because one, two, maybe three, maybe it’s all over. What we didn’t want, what we avoided – and we’ve said it over and over. Understand this very well, so this bluff is the stuffing of such clearly unrealistic events. , is another way to increase the stakes, so you can play again and say: well, we will not touch the Crimea, but you do this and that. that’s how it happens, “said Konstantinov.
Crimea became a part of Russia with the referendum held in March 2014 after the coup in Ukraine. In the referendum, 96.77% of the voters in Crimea and 95.6% of the voters in Sevastopol voted to join Russia. Ukraine still considers Crimea as its temporarily occupied territory, many Western countries support Kiev in this regard. The Russian leadership has repeatedly stated that the residents of Crimea vote for democratic reunification with Russia in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Crimean issue is “finally closed.”
