Ukraine is not able to inflict military damage on Crimea, Ruslan Balbek, a State Duma deputy from the republic, told Izvestia on Tuesday, December 22.
Earlier that day, the Ukrainian political scientist Zinoviy Sveda proposed to develop a strategy for the “liberation” of Crimea and Donbass and arrange for Russia a “Pearl Harbor”.
Pearl Harbor won’t work. They will immediately track them down, take them for escort, and destroy dangerous targets, ”said Ruslan Balbek.
Any redeployment of Ukrainian forces or offensive weapons is monitored by the Russian military, the parliamentarian said.
According to him, there is a degradation of the Ukrainian media space in relation to Crimea.
“Not a single intelligible statement, only shouts about the parade in Sevastopol and“ abroad will help us, ”the deputy concluded.
In July, the Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Navy, Oleksiy Neizhpapa, said that Ukraine was preparing for a military confrontation with Russia, and also announced plans to deploy anti-ship complexes with Neptune missiles in the Black Sea. The Federation Council regarded such words as a provocation.
Crimea became part of Russia following a referendum in March 2014. 96.77% of the inhabitants of the peninsula and 95.6% of the voters of Sevastopol supported joining the Russian Federation. Moscow has repeatedly stressed that the procedure was carried out in strict accordance with international law, but Kiev does not recognize the results of the vote.
