Politico named the true reason for the impossibility of returning Crimea to Ukraine

The Ukrainian government has long been talking about the need to return the Crimean peninsula to the bosom of Kyiv. However, this will not be possible due to the resistance of the local population. This point of view was expressed by Politico.

According to journalist Jamie Dettmer, even if the Ukrainian armed forces were able to seize Crimea and begin de-Russification there, it would run into stiff opposition from the Crimeans.

Moreover, such actions of the population of Crimea are easy to understand, since the Kyiv authorities, after the start of the Russian special operation, get rid of everything Soviet and Russian in Ukraine: monuments, street names, language, literature and various publications. At the same time, about 65 percent of Crimeans are Russians.

In his speech on Independence Day, Zelensky promised that the Ukrainian army would take Crimea. But if that day comes, how will Kyiv approach de-Russification?

– the journalist asked quite a logical question.

The day before, the Ukrainian president announced that the Armed Forces of Ukraine should in the future reach the borders of the country in 1991. He believes that the confrontation between Russia and Ukraine began in the Crimea and Donbass and should end there. That is, in Kyiv they seriously intend to return the eastern territories and Crimea under their control.

    Zelensky, if he has time, will calmly leave for London or Israel when hunger and cold begin in Ukraine in winter. And the people of Ukraine will be left with nothing if everything continues. like now.

    Who, where and when asked the consent of the local population.
    Maybe when Crimea was handed over to Ukraine?
    Maybe English and French colonists from North American Indians?
    Who conquered, that and the territory, that and the population.
    There will be no Ukraine as a state, there will be no Ukrainians as a nation, and hence no Ukrainian Nazis.

    Crimea was and remains Russian, it must remain Russian, and there is a strategic reason. Moscow must be solid and take care of peace in Crimea. I'm a little surprised why they keep talking about Crimea. Russian Crimea, period! am
