Ukraine needs a new army, a new national guard and new police to return the occupied Russian Federation Crimea. This was stated by interior Minister Arsen Avakov in the air of the program «Right to rule» on the TV channel «1+1».
«Now this is the state of Ukraine. And here it should be clearly understood. We need to recreate and then, in the presence of our will, the Crimea will be with us. I have no doubt about it,» he said.
According to the head of the interior Ministry, he once again saw the return of the Crimea a week and a half ago in Kherson when we took the oath of office for new police officers. He said that at this time he was approached by two young police officers from the Crimea — Russian and Crimean Tatar, who said they wanted to come back and be ready for it.
«The head of the patrol police Vinnitsa, a Crimean Tatar, who now is dealing with this issue. And the guys, we together with Mustafa Dzhemilev and Refat Chubarov are preparing as a special separate unit of the National guard. This project is being prepared to be ready to return Crimea to us. I am convinced that it will be when we will be strong and we’ll be ready,» concluded Avakov.
One of the reasons why Kiev could not respond to the operation of the Russian Federation on the annexation of Crimea, in particular, were signed by Viktor Yanukovych «Kharkiv agreements», which allowed to significantly increase the Russian military presence in Crimea, Avakov said.
«We couldn’t do when the planes landed at airfields in the Crimea because Yanukovych signed the Kharkiv agreement», — said the Minister.
Avakov noted that the ratio of troops on the Peninsula by the beginning of the occupation was not in favor of Ukraine, adding that the country’s leadership considered the option of sending the army to the Crimea.
«The speech then went about 5 thousand people. But if we sent these troops, the mainland remained without an efficient army, while along the border was about 200 thousand soldiers of the enemy», — said Avakov.
A similar opinion in the program was expressed by the then acting Minister of defense Ihor Tenyukh.
«Crimea should have become the occasion for large-scale aggression against Ukraine», — he said.
According to Tenyukh, the few military units in the Crimea, remaining true to the oath to the people of Ukraine, who were ready to engage in battle with the occupying forces of Russia, could not solve the problem across the state.
«And from Chernihiv to Donetsk and Mariupol fully Nude front, when the North, East and South were devastated, the decision is what to do: there are 5 thousand combat troops and throw them into the Crimea, where they put? Or save the Ukraine?», he said.
As is known, the Kharkov agreement between Ukraine and the Russian Federation signed on 21 April 2010, provided for the extension of stay of the black sea fleet of the Russian Federation on the territory of Ukraine for 25 years from may 28, 2017 with the subsequent automatic prolongation for further periods of five years. For that, Russia gave Ukraine a discount on gas in the amount of one hundred dollars from the established contract price.
By the way, in may of 2010 at that time the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Medvedev, answering questions of students at the Kyiv national University named after Shevchenko, said that Russia will not use its black sea fleet to attack neighboring countries. The question of how Russia can guarantee this, he said,» the Bender said: this warranty can only give an insurance policy».
«These safeguards is a system of international relations, it is our commitment within the UN in accordance with international conventions,» said Medvedev.
He assured that Russia will not disregard international obligations.
«For Russia it is not profitable», he explained.
Russia invaded and annexed Ukrainian Crimea, violating Ukraine data, in 1994 the guarantee of the sovereignty and territorial integrity, as well as the beginning of the «hybrid war» against Ukraine at the Donbass, secretly, without a Declaration of war by introducing troops and equipment and covering the occupation of several districts of the two Eastern regions with the help of the puppet separatist organizations.
March 15, 2015 in an interview for the film production of TV channel «Russia» «Crimea. The path to the homeland», the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin first spoke about how in the spring of 2014 gave the orders for the relocation of units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation on the sovereign territory of Ukraine. In particular, in order to, as he put it, «to disarm and block» the Ukrainian military contingent in the process of occupation of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea they were sent there elite units of the Russian Main intelligence Directorate (GRU).
Earlier media reported that Russia had previously issued a medal «For returning of Crimea» with the date of the invasion on 20 February 2014.
The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine officially declared the beginning of temporary occupation of Crimea on 20 February 2014. Western countries also do not recognize the annexation of Crimea and imposed a series of economic sanctions.
The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko believes that annexed the Peninsula can be returned only by diplomatic means: «the Optimal format to start such a mechanism I consider the format «Geneva plus»: with the participation of our partners from the EU and the United States, and possibly countries-signatories of the Budapest Memorandum».
According to political scientist Oleksandr Paliy, the countries of the «plus» can be France and China.
As the coordinator of the action on the blockade of the Crimea Lenur islyamov allow a military scenario of the return of the Peninsula.
