the “Absolutely fantastic statement”

Deputy Chairman of the Federation Council Committee on international Affairs Vladimir dzhabarov believes that the commander of the Ukrainian Navy, such a statement is pushing the country into armed conflict with Russia.

“why are they invading? Want to “liberate” Crimea from Russia, I think that he was captured? And they asked the inhabitants of the Peninsula? In my opinion, the attitude of Crimeans confirmed the final vote on the amendments in the Constitution, where more than 90% of Crimeans supported these amendments. This speaks to the fact that they normally feel in their home, which is called the Russian Federation and do not need someone’s “release”,” — said RT Vladimir Jabbarov.

According to the politician, the commander “has to answer for his words”, because that’s the way it is “embarrassing their President and their country before the world community”.

“Mosquito bites commander of the mosquito fleet in Ukraine no one is scared of Russia, — said Cowicide. Russia, the strongest power in the world, afraid of no one, and no reason. We are a peaceful and strong country. We are a powerful Maritime power, and we should be friends”.

In an interview with RT political analyst Ivan Mizuho said Russia never declared its plans to “attack” on the Ukrainian government to resume the work of the North Crimean channel.

“This is an absolutely fantastic statement — said the expert. — Actually, this is just another empty talk from the Ukrainian military”.

The Ukrainian leader has called “extremely important” tests of the missile complex “Neptune”. According to him, the adoption of complex weapons will make the country “an even stronger player in the Black and Azov seas”.
