Turchynov to Lavrov: the “Crimean issue” can be closed only after the last Russian soldier leaves the peninsula
The "Crimean issue" can be closed only after the liberation of the peninsula from the occupants. That was the comment of NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov on the statement of the head of the Russian Ministry for Foreign Affairs Sergey Lavrov about "Russia closing the Crimean issue".
According to him, Lavrov, as all the leadership of Russia, dreams to close the "Crimean issue". "This issue can be closed only after the termination of the occupation and withdrawal of all Russian troops from the peninsula", - he said.
"The Russian naval fleet, - Oleksandr Turchynov emphasized, - also must leave Sevastopol due to a major violation of the Agreement on its stationing."
"And completely the "Crimean issue" can be resolved only after the restoration of the entire system of Ukrainian authorities in Crimea", - he said.
"Russian leaders have to understand that it is necessary to return the stolen and no country that respects itself will cooperate with criminals and thieves. For Russia Crimea became a stone that makes it sink quickly", - NSDC secretary stated.
