Crimea can become an independent state, says Taras Berezovets, the Ukrainian political analyst, journalist, director of personal and strategic consulting Berta Communications.

He said this in an interview with FaceNews.

- Recently, the Western experts have started saying Crimea will be neither Russian, nor Ukrainian. Russia is now carrying out ethnic cleansing: Crimean Tatars, the indigenous population, and Ukrainians who do not agree with the Russian policy are being displaced from the peninsula. Also, the occupation authorities want to resettle Russians to Crimea, many Chechens, Ossetians have already been resettled. They are assigned to senior positions: school principals, chief doctors.

It is predicted that very soon - just in 2 years the population composition will change greatly in Crimea.
