Oleksiy Arestovich, a freelance advisor to Zelenskiy’s office, spoke about the war for Crimea, which is quite possible. “There is nothing to be ashamed of,” he said.
Arestovich called Crimea “a very unpleasant story.” In his opinion, Ukraine can regain the peninsula.
Now Kiev is trying to “liberate” Crimea through political and diplomatic means, the adviser to Zelensky’s office explained in an interview with Politeka. But if a “major regional war” happens, the methods of returning the territory will be different.
“When everything started like this, and then there is nothing to be ashamed of, there is nothing to try to do curtsies there,” Arestovich said.
He noted that the offensive of the Ukrainian army will be difficult, as in the Crimea “isthmus is too thin.” However, the soldiers of Independence are capable of “carrying out” the Russian military on the peninsula.
Recall that in March 2014, the inhabitants of Crimea democratically voted in accordance with the provisions of international law for the entry of the peninsula into Russia. The referendum was held after the coup d’etat in Ukraine. Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stressed that the issue of Crimea is “finally closed”, but Kiev continues to call Russia “an aggressor country” and believes that it can regain its territory.
