Yeltsin's Advisor: Crimea had to be ceded in exchange for nuclear weapons


The statement by Yeltsin's former adviser, Sergei Filatov, that in 1991 Moscow received requests from the Russian-speaking regions of Ukraine not to leave them under the authority of Kiev, were misinterpreted.


This in an interview with the publication "Sight" said Sergey Stankevich, also a member of a cohort of those people whom Boris Yeltsin listened to and who was a direct participant in the events of that time.

According to Stankevich, there were no official delegations of Crimea and Donbass, with petitions to accept Russia, in Moscow. This refers exclusively to the “popular stream” of unofficial interlocutors who spoke on their own behalf or on behalf of public organizations.

As for the possibility of leaving Crimea and Donbass within Russia, the package agreement concluded between the countries in 1991 provided for broad autonomy for Crimea, which became a republic, the creation of a base for the Russian Black Sea Fleet on the peninsula, and, most importantly, the understanding that nuclear weapons from Ukraine moves to Russia.

The former adviser believes that in the conditions when small arms groups appeared in the west and in the center of Ukraine, the issue of the export of nuclear tactical charges, of which there were about 700 units, was a primary and extremely important task.

Recall that earlier we wrote that Yeltsin’s former adviser Sergei Filatov stated that during the collapse of the USSR, Crimea, Donetsk and Lugansk were asked not to give them to Kiev.

    All the lands of Russia temporarily occupied by the countries of the former USSR could be returned simply in exchange for recognition of their independence by Russia, but Yeltsin and the company never worried about Russia's interests, these are temporary workers, thieves and crooks, in the service of the Yankees ... Yeltsin’s granddaughter is a citizen USA, daughters are also citizens of NATO countries ... and that’s it ...

      Absolutely agree. All concessions of the then power of the Russian Federation were voluntary, NATO was ready for the status quo in any proposed option.
  2. Papa Yelts-Un has surrendered Ukraine without hesitation, and Ukraine’s nuclear weapons have been taken away thanks to the doodles. After all, the main thing for the guarantor was the looting of Russia, which he did with rapture.

      But somehow it was all hasty, unsystematic and chaotic, with a saber (glass) bare.
      But now this process is becoming more and more streamlined, industrialized and legalized, and the “father” of the process has monuments, centers and fame. good

    Nothing needs to be done to please the stupid.
    We are a great country, We won in wars!
    By wealth and people, we are the first in the set,
    and under Yeltsin we were like an inscription on a fence.

    What kind of nonsense from the "second-hand adviser", has he really fallen into senile senility - he is confused with the events of the Euromaidan, why is he lying so brazenly ??!
    The fact that he is one of the closest accomplices of EBN and his insinuations, counting on the ignorance of history by young Russians and a “short memory” of contemporaries of those events, covers the flagrant anti-state-anti-people’s crimes of his “patron” and his own - I understand that!
    Everyone in the Union then knew that the crippled "drunk" who was seizing for absolute power in the RSFSR had no time for the Crimea and the Russians remaining behind the cordons of Russia, corrupted by the generous Bolsheviks in favor of the "natsokrains" they had created!

    Liberalists distinguished themselves again:

    According to Stankevich, there were no official delegations of Crimea and Donbass, with petitions to accept Russia, in Moscow. It is exclusively about “Public flow” of informal interlocutors who spoke on their own behalf or on behalf of public organizations.

    And what official delegation does he need in this case? The king of Crimea? Or the president of Donbass? The country was falling apart, like its authorities, who could represent the people? That was represented by "intercessors and public organizations." From time immemorial, tsars listened to them, and Lenin even adopted this practice, like other Soviet leaders - ostentatiously, though, but still it was like a “voice of the people”. But Stankevich and others like him were not interested. It was not in their plans, so to speak. Or "not their level" ... So now they grind something about the "absence of official delegations" ... Gnus ... They are sick of these personalities ... But they still feel nothing, Chubais, Stankevich Kudrin, etc. They live quietly, they give out interviews ... like Gorbi ... Yeltsin is Judas, if he had not died, he would have been a respected person too, I suppose ...
    A strange state, Russia. Some traitors are hanged, these are those who have nothing particularly happened with this betrayal. And others who have succeeded, live - do not grieve in wealth and honor ... Or monuments to them are grandiose ...

    In general, 30 years have passed, and now you can fantasize (in favor of yourself, your beloved) freely (if only not to hurt the owners).

    To listen to these Stankevichs - do not respect yourself! As I see it on the screen, I immediately switch the TV channel. If others do so, then Soloviev and others will no longer invite these gentlemen so that the rating of their programs does not fall.

    What nonsense. Ukraine gave nuclear weapons only after the Budapest memorandum, under pressure from the United States. And this is 1994. Again Stankevich breaches.
