The Ukraine’s Presidential Commissioner on the Affairs of the Crimean Tatar people, MP Mustafa Dzhemilev believes that the Western countries, which make concessions to Russia concerning the occupation of the Crimea, can pay heavy price for it.
- The West can pay a heavy price for flexibility in matters relating to the occupation of the Crimea. After all, in 1994 the US and the UK along with Russia persuaded Ukraine to give up its nuclear arsenal providing guarantees of security and territorial integrity. Obeying the Moscow’s dictatorship in the Crimean issue, the world, in fact, rejects the efforts targeting non-proliferation of nuclear weapons. Ukraine’s example teaches dictators that only the possession of nuclear weapons provides security guarantees, Dzhemilev told in an interview with Polish newspaper Gazeta Wyborcza.
According to Mustafa Dzhemilev, Western politicians will not take drastic measures to make Moscow return the Crimea.
