The Former Foreign Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Ohryzko told about his attitude to the Russian President's decision to eliminate the "Crimean Federal District" and to attach the annexed peninsula to the Southern Federal District. He named two reasons for that. The first is the Crimean authorities' inability to control the peninsula, and the second is the Kremlin's attempt to "hide" Crimea.
- There are two poins here, internal and external. The internal shows that those bastards who remained in control after the annexation of Crimea, have proved their total inability to run anything. Plus, corruption, misappropriation of funds... They have probably brought some Moscow comrades to the boil, and they decided that it must be stopped. And the external one, is a weak attempt of Moscow to "hide" Crimea somewhere and "dissolve" it in something larger. Like, everyone requires the return of Crimea, and now there is no such thing as the Crimea, there is a part of some Federal District, Ohryzko said.
But the Moscow’s effort to hide the stolen territory will not succeed. According to the former Minister of Foreign Affairs, the whole world considers Crimea a part of Ukraine and will never recognize the annexation of the peninsula.
Yesterday, July 28, the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin signed a decree on elimination "of the Crimean Federal District," which included the occupied Crimea and the city of Sevastopol, and attached the territory to the Southern Federal District.
