President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky once again expressed his intention to “return” the Crimean peninsula to the country. To this, political scientist Ruslan Balbek replied that the Kyiv authorities had “short hands.”
The expert believes that the pumping of Ukraine with Western weapons “turned the head” of the local establishment. However, there is nothing but populism behind such loud statements about Crimea.
“Of course, I admit that plans for a military operation against Crimea are being developed, but here, as they say, the hands are short. And we are all used to the fact that loud militaristic statements in Ukraine are made by people who, in their birth, did not hold a machine gun, ”the political scientist said in an interview with RIA Novosti.
Earlier, Zelensky’s representative for Crimea, Tamila Tasheva, said that Ukraine had changed its approaches to the “return” of the republic. She stressed that the government of the country in this matter places special hopes on the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
