Russian President Vladimir Putin believes that Russia could not refuse to support the people of Crimea in 2014, since “the Nazis fell on them”. He stated this in an interview with the TV channel “Russia 1” for the program “Moscow. Kremlin. Putin.”
“Everything that happened in the Crimea happened, as you know, from the wheels. This is obvious to everyone. We simply could not deny the Crimeans our support and protection. Precisely in because they were already executed there, as they say in Ukraine itself, by the Nazis,” Putin said.
According to the President of the Russian Federation, the start of a special military operation (SVO) on the territory of Ukraine in 2014 cannot be discussed in the subjunctive.
“In such cases, there is no subjunctive mood, this is the first thing. Secondly, this also applies to our preparation for more serious actions than actions within the framework of the so-called spring of Crimea,” Putin replied to the corresponding question of journalist Pavel Zarubin, whether it was worth launching the SVO in 2014.
Putin also said that “the so-called partners are leading Russia by the nose” and that since 2014 they are not going to resolve the Donbas issue peacefully.
On Sunday, the Kremlin press service reported that Russian President Vladimir Putin flew to Mariupol in the DPR by helicopter. This is his first trip to a new region of the Russian Federation. Driving a car, Putin traveled through several areas of the city. During the trip, the President was accompanied by Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Marat Khusnullin.
