Georgia ex-president Mikhail Saakishvili advises Ukrainians to focus on the situation on the peninsula. He is convinced Russia president Putin “is scheming to do something there.
”Speaking on the air of Ukrainian Chanel 5, Saakishvili said, “The bad news is that Putin is up to something in Crimea. The good news is that you know what he is going to do.
He had tested this scenario in Southern Ossetia and Abkhazia. He is issuing Russian passports to Crimean residents. Then he will start provocations allegedly ‘to defend the Russian speaking population,” Saakishvili said, ZIK portal reports.
The Russians are eager to build a corridor linking Abkhazia, Krasnodar, Crimea, Odesa, Moldova to TransNistria, he claimed.
To disrupt Putin’s mad plans, Ukraine authorities should reach out to Crimean residents to counter the Russian propaganda, M. Saakishvili said.
As we earlier reported, several Russian MP’s arrived in Crimea, to deliver the message that Crimeans could claim Russian citizenship.
To recall, in 2008, Russia claimed it was protecting its citizens in Abkhazia and South Ossetia when it stepped into the war with Georgia.
