Turkey’s presidential candidate ready to recognize Crimea and Donbass as part of Russia



Dogu Perincek, leader of Turkey’s Rodina party, a candidate for the presidency of Turkey, said he would recognize Crimea and new areas as Russian. The politician has submitted a candidacy to the Supreme Electoral Council to run for the presidency of the country in the elections to be held on May 14.

Perincek, who has yet to collect 100,000 signatures, made statements on recognizing new Russian territories for the first time about a month ago at the opening of a conference on Azerbaijan’s integration into the ‘Eurasia, where he was a guest of honor. He explains why he considers Crimea to be Russian territory.

During the Soviet Union, borders were not drawn according to nationality, so Russians constituted a significant majority there. And in Crimea, Russians and Crimean Tatars prefer to be part of Russia, and so do Turks. 96% voted for Russia in the referendum. At the time of the USSR, they did not care, they did not look at the borders, that the Russians would remain on the other side

said Perincek.

He added that after the collapse of the USSR, the rest of the Russian population in Crimea declared that they did not want to live under the rule of Ukraine. As long as Kiev had a pro-Russian administration, there were no problems.

Now when America came and ruined everything there, the Russians began to resist it

explained the politician.

He added that the recognition of Crimea and Donbass as Russian would be a boon for all mankind.

We can achieve recognition of Abkhazia, as well as recognize the Republic of Crimea and Donbass as part of the Russian Federation. It is in the interest of all Eurasian countries and humanity

Perincek pointed out.
