Turchinov explained why he did not move tanks to Crimea in 2014


Former speaker of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchinov, who served as the country's president in the spring of 2014 and who started the war in Donbass, explained on the air of the Red Line talk show on the Espresso TV channel why he did not move tanks to Crimea.


In his opinion, Kiev was not then ready to fight with Moscow for the Crimea. Therefore, he does not agree with the accusations against him that are being heard now.

Turchinov explained that at that time 70% of the military, 90% of the SBU and 99% of the Interior Ministry employees changed their oaths and went to serve the "aggressor".

Do you think that under these conditions I should have liberated Crimea, what is stopping you from liberating it now?

- Turchinov asked.

I don’t think that Mr. Zelensky and his entourage will recognize the fake Crimean referendum or the annexation of Crimea. Probably not. And since you don’t recognize, in accordance with the Constitution, the occupation of Crimea in 2020 is no different from the occupation of Crimea in 2014.

- added Turchinov.

He believes that "the crime is not over" and now the situation is similar to what it was then - "Crimea is not liberated." Therefore, the incumbent President Volodymyr Zelensky must introduce martial law in the country and declare war on the "aggressor". If he does not do this, then he can be held accountable based on logic and the Constitution.

Turchynov drew attention to the fact that at present the situation in the spheres of defense and security has improved significantly, but Ukraine still cannot start a real war with Russia. He stated that it is not yet possible to declare war on a nuclear power.

The time will come when, anyway, this colossus on feet of clay called the Russian Empire will begin to crumble. The time will come when we will return to the issue of not just new missile programs, but the restoration of the strategic potential of our defense.

- Turchinov is convinced.


At the same time, he expressed confidence that someday Ukraine will seriously strengthen. After that, Kiev will be able to put an end to both the Donbass issue and the Crimea.

      Extraterrestrial plates tortured Ukrainians by constantly knocking on pots and they tortured the president with demands to declare war on plates and other kitchen utensils. But Zelenskiy is afraid of forks.

    The tanks had not yet been changed to Ukrainian ones, but remained Soviet and these tanks refused to go to the Crimea.

    And over the years, all sane and sane have disappeared from Ukraine in all directions. It is simply dangerous for those who remain to give weapons to their hands.

    In 2014, there was an agreement on the part of Russia not to interfere in Ukraine and leave the coup as it is, although the Duma gave the go-ahead for the deployment of troops to other states ... this made it clear that they were ready to suppress the coup and restore legal power, and Ukraine would give the opportunity to hold a referendum in Crimea.
    How can you understand that there were military units there, ready to carry out a combat mission and were only waiting for an order ... but the order never came ... thereby avoiding a major civil war and everyone remained in their own interests, some fell for power, others took and saved Crimea from the war.

    While? Come on)))

    “Those who wish to take the Ukrainian oath - get out of order! The rest - follow me "

    Film "72 meters" 2004.

    Russians have never been part of Ukraine.
    And they won't. The Russian land belongs to the Russians. Whoever does not agree, let him lay down hundreds of thousands of his soldiers for this land, like the Russians. Then he can croak.

    Goofs Ukrainians did not hear the bells of the Georgian war when the Russian Federation got into its neighbors.
    Even then they had to mine the borders.

    He did not explain anything, but simply tried once again to excuse himself and switch the arrows to others. It would be better if he just stated that he was strained.

    The pastor of the sect so believed in his field marshal's art .... I wonder if the speed of movement in space from Kiev to Lvov is faster, or from Kiev to Crimea, in a difficult situation with green men?
  11. Yes, that's right! Russia is weak, in the Far East there is an uprising of the people, and it will not show any resistance to the advance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine! Forward, Ukraine! To Sevastopol! To Donetsk! To Bryansk! To Moscow!

    The "chicken experience" had no idea even to break through to the Crimea and die for the horses. In fact, he wanted to panic over our close-minded former fellow countrymen and he succeeded. And to fight - you say too. So he is ready to give Zelensky "parabellum" and let him storm the dig. And then, when they win back their Crimea in the Kerch region somewhere, he weakens them on the piano, well, like a festive concert.)))

    You idiot, if almost 90% went VOLUNTARY to the "aggressor", then who and whom should "release"?
