the Head of the foreign Ministry of Ukraine Dmitry Kuleba said that his office is developing a concept for the return of the Crimea. According to him, the country needs to solve several tactical tasks to a cherished dream come true.
first, you need not forget about the Peninsula, and secondly, to comply with the sanctions regime against Russia, thirdly, the need to seek additional international instruments to put pressure on Moscow. And then sooner or later the Crimea will rush into the arms of the Ukraine. “MK” has found out from experts if there is enough of these three items to the Crimea ceased to be Russian.
Alexei Yakubina, the Ukrainian analyst:
– the Minister decided to demonstrate the relevance of the topic of the Crimea to the Ukrainian government. Because very often in the official Kiev’s accusations that the entire negotiating process dedicated to the Donbass, and about the forgotten Peninsula. The same can explain the recent betting Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Andriy Melnyk with the former German Chancellor and Chairman of the Board of Directors of “Rosneft” Gerhard Schroeder that Crimea will return. Perhaps the Minister simply decided to continue this story. Earlier the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky talked about the desire to initiate a separate negotiation format in the Crimea, not to associate this question with the Donbas. This he said during his speech at the UN, and even in the context of the summit, “Norman four” in Paris. One of the participants in this format Zelensky sees US. But the settlement of the conflict in the East of Ukraine all the same is much more relevant than the identity of the Peninsula.
the Crimean Issue comes up periodically, but no more. For example, the policy discussed the topic of supplying water to the region. While the negotiation process in the Crimea is hampered mainly by two reasons. On the one hand, the “European solidarity” of Petro Poroshenko any dialogue calls trying to negotiate with the enemy. On the other, the official Kiev tend to focus on the Crimean Tatars, which are not on the Peninsula the majority of the population cannot speak on behalf of the entire region.
Denis Denisov, head of the Institute for peace initiatives and conflict resolution:
– the fact that Crimea is part of Russia, all have become accustomed. Moreover, not only Russia but also many European States have tired of that Ukrainian diplomats are trying to impose a debate on the affiliation of the Peninsula. As a reason for the information confrontation with Russia, this topic is really important and interesting, and as an applied discussion to achieve a particular result looks unrealistic. What needs to happen in order to Crimea was “neutral” or even returned to the Ukraine? In fact, in Russia needs to happen is some veryHB is a serious disaster. There are no other options, so there is nothing to discuss.
meanwhile, the Ukrainian policy each year show more and more low level of training. They could at least learn from their colleagues four years ago. Today Ukrainian diplomats themselves create problems for the future. You need to understand that as soon as the European countries will be more or less a real opportunity to abandon anti-Russian sanctions, they immediately take advantage of it and begin to quickly restore and develop relations with Moscow. In conditions of severe global economic crisis, it can be seen especially clearly. First and foremost, the European Union will think about themselves and not about Ukraine.
however, for Ukraine the Crimea is also not relevant. Kiev reminds of the Peninsula only in order to get additional loans from the IMF and so on. In addition, Ukraine can not allow the international community has forgotten about the Republic of coronavirus and economic crisis.
