Following the annexation of Crimea by the Russian Federation, a popular resort has become a powerful military base, said the Ukrainian Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman, speaking at the 13th annual meeting of Yalta European Strategy (YES).

“Ukrainian Crimea before the annexation was a wonderful resort, and after the annexation it became a heavy-duty military base. Do you see the difference? The difference is that Ukraine has never posed a threat to anyone. Therefore, our task is to consolidate the entire world and force the aggressor to give up their plans. Today, every country in Europe, NATO countries, should think: Who's next?” The Prime Minister said.

Mustafa Dzhemilev, speaking at the forum "Ukraine-2016 in Washington," informed that six nuclear warheads had been deployed to the occupied Crimea.
