Ukraine in vain counts on Turkey's help in the Crimean issue

Recently, Kiev has been counting on Ankara's help in the Crimean issue. However, according to a number of experts, the Ukrainian authorities and local "patriots" -Russophobes should not hope so.

For example, Andrey Zolotarev, a Ukrainian political strategist, head of the Third Sector NGO, commenting on a news site "Politnavigator" the trip of Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to Turkey, said that the hopes of Kiev can be considered political naivety.

One should not expect significant consequences of the visit. It is obvious that the visit will be interpreted by everyone in the context of the ongoing war in Nagorno-Karabakh. Zelensky virtually secretly supported Azerbaijan's position

- said Zolotarev.

He is sure that Turkey has interests in Ukraine, as it is a large sales market for Turkish goods. But Kiev is unlikely to be able to get anything more significant from Ankara than political statements on Crimea. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan will not solve the problem of the peninsula. Therefore, everything will remain within the framework of the relations that have formed in recent years.

In turn, according to Russian political scientist Rostislav Ischenko, Zelensky's visit is aimed at raising the rating of his Servant of the People party, because on October 25, 2020, local elections are to be held in Ukraine. With this trip, the Ukrainian leader tried to demonstrate to the public his achievements at the foreign policy level.

Zelensky tries to cover up internal political failures ahead of elections

- stressed Ishchenko.

At the same time, the Turkish president did not say anything new. He, as before, limited himself to routine phrases about the “annexation of Crimea”. The political scientist recalled that Armenia and Belarus, Russia's closest allies, also do not recognize Crimea as Russian.

As for the military-technical cooperation between Ukraine and Turkey, the parties are unlikely to be successful in this matter. During the visit, they discussed the creation of an enterprise in Ukraine for the assembly of Turkish drones, as well as the joint production of aircraft.

They will not produce anything on Ukrainian territory, since Ukraine has long lost the competence to produce even light armored vehicles. And planes and drones - all the more so

- Ishchenko is sure.

The contract with Peru showed everything. It was necessary to build some unfortunate An-148, which they have been building for many, many years. The same will happen with drones.

- summed up Ishchenko.

    And how will Turkey help them in the issue of returning Crimea?
    Will they unleash a war with us?
    Erdogan, of course, is already infected with megalomania, but not an idio. ... The war will bury Turkey. And for whom?

      And in Donbass, they will be able to start quite logically.

        Where, but in the Donbass, Turkey definitely has nothing to do. They don’t need Donbass. They need Crimea, but they won't take it, and they know it.

      The policy of the entire region is based on significant players, Ukraine in its current form does not fit. To use it as an enemy against the Russian Federation, this is why they are preparing an "independent", but in all respects from the United States ... The Russian government lost in the struggle for a strategically important neighbor, Ukraine, who is guilty, who have been in power for decades, but seem to care about their profits and families abroad than about the state and people of Russia ...

    In fact, the entire "Crimean alignment" of the Turkish authorities (there is not only Erdogan, but his camarilla in action!) Before the "Euromaidan" was built on "soft power" and on the fact that more and more "Ukrainian" Kiev authorities themselves will expel the Russian Black Sea Fleet from the Crimea and "crush" the pro-Russian majority of the inhabitants of the peninsula in an ukronationalist way!
    And only then, with the help of the Turkoman "Mejlis", Turkey would "push aside", even more by that time economically weakened and with no Naval Forces, ukrovlast from the possession of Crimea, who would have prevented her from this (if the American "hegemon" the Turks would have promised a joint base in Sevastopol) ?!
    But the Americans and the "common Europeans", with their hasty "Euromaidan" and its consequences (in the form of Crimea's "withdrawal" into Russia), sharply violated these insinuating "friendly" plans ("hug to strangle" is so Eastern) of Ankara, in which a lot of Turkish forces and funds were invested for all the "nezalezhnisti" rocks!
    Of course, Erdogan was enraged (when the "case of the Turkish Crimea" was advancing inexorably and seemed almost "on the ointment", although the Turks had to patiently "play long") and did not hide this, openly defied Washington (and the Washington ones were "offended" and even, in the heat, they tried to "change the" enraged "donkey carrying burning brushwood at the crossing, but then the good VVP" intervened "with the" mnogokhodovochka "and did not give offense to the vile Turkish" partner "...)!
    Now, Turkey is actively pushing cosmopolitan, incompetent (in everything except embezzlement, of course!) "Maidan authorities" to ransom the Kherson region to the detriment of its own Ukrainian population!
    In whipping up anti-Russian hysteria and Banderonazi provocations in the Crimean direction, the Turks, of course, will help you (including militants!) - this is completely in the interests of Turkey!
    The Armed Forces of Ukraine will also "help (very unselfishly!)" With Turkish drones, which perfectly "proved" themselves in Nagorno-Karabakh in the fight against Armenian paramilitary formations similar to those in Donbas. They can even organize SKD assembly and commissioning (without technology transfer) of Bayraktars and other similar drones on Ukrainian territory by Turkish specialists - not for nothing! The planes will also be sold!
    The Turks will also support small-scale (for medium and large, the Banderlog in the treasury will no longer have enough funds, and "w / Bandera" greed should not be discounted) by shipbuilding for the Navy, this is also in Turkish interests (and "the strongest in Europe" ukroarmiyu and navy, they were not afraid before!)!
    Dear Rostislav Ishchenko, having long been torn away from his "land" and staying in a safe, complimentary environment, is gradually losing a heightened "feel", alas, it happens to everyone!

    What, son, help you your Poles?

    At school, life is not left in the second year.

    We are not happy for anyone who does not speak German.

    Great powers do not sacrifice themselves for their allies.

    Some make promises for the pleasure of breaking them.

    In the event of a change in political status

    - I mean after the collapse of the Russian Federation, which secretly hopes not only Turkey and Ukraine, but all our "democrats", "partners" and "friends"
    In this case, there are two options:
    1. Return to Ukraine.
    2. Declaration of independence.
    In any case, Turkey will lay claim to the Crimea, do not go to the fortune-teller.
