“This is already the former Ukraine.”  What territories can be part of Russia

Ukraine will no longer be preserved within its current borders, says Georgy Muradov, Permanent Representative of Crimea to the President of the Russian Federation. His words are quoted by RIA Novosti.

“Ukraine in the form in which it was, I think, will no longer remain. This is already the former Ukraine,” he said.

As the Deputy Prime Minister of the Crimean government put it, “in the format in which Ukraine was before, it could exist as a federal state with full respect for the rights of national communities, in particular, linguistic, cultural, educational and religious ones.”

“This was especially true of the rights of the state-forming Russian people, whose linguistic rights are enshrined in the tenth article of the Ukrainian constitution. However, these principles were grossly violated, and the Ukrainian state became unviable,” Muradov said.

According to him, not a single country that respects itself and its people would tolerate flagrant violation of the primordial rights of its compatriots in neighboring states.

“And even more so if these attempts result in outright extermination of people, as happened in recent years with regard to Russians and Russian-speakers in Ukraine, where they lived for centuries in their native land,” he added.

After the Russian military took control of the Kherson region of Ukraine and the south of the Zaporozhye region of Ukraine, military-civilian administrations began to form in these territories. Muradov previously stated that the “territories of the south of the former Ukraine” occupied by the Russian authorities would become part of Russia. He also claimed that “previously these regions were ‘gifted’ to Kyiv, but now Russian TV channels are broadcast in them, Russian currency is used, and lessons are taught at school according to Russian textbooks,” recalls RBC.

We add that Muradov has been in his current position since August 7, 2014. At the same time, he was included in the list of persons subjected to sanctions. for “actions aimed at undermining the territorial integrity of Ukraine.” Before being appointed to a post in Crimea, he was deputy head (2010-2014).

“There is no question of the occupation of the territories of Ukraine”

In the Kherson region of Ukraine and the Azov part of the Zaporozhye region of Ukraine, the transition to rubles and the restoration of trade ties with the Crimea are already underway. As Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the military-civilian administration of the Kherson region, reported earlier, the interim authorities will turn to Russian President Vladimir Putin with a request to annex the region, but “no referendums” are planned.

Note that Stremousov is a pro-Russian activist, co-founder of the Tavria News agency and former leader of the Kherson branch of the Socialist Party of Ukraine. Stremousov tried to be elected to and also become the mayor of Kherson, but both times he was defeated in the elections, gaining less than 2% of the vote.

On February 24, Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine. As Vladimir Putin stated, its goal is “to protect people who have been subjected to bullying and genocide by the Kyiv regime for eight years.” According to him, the occupation of the territories of Ukraine is out of the question, but “Moscow recognizes the right of all peoples to self-determination.”

Recall, on February 21, the Russian Federation recognized the independence of the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics. One of the tasks of the special operation is the exit of the DPR and LPR groups to the administrative borders of the republics.
