The Ukrainian port city of Odessa should come under Russian control. This was stated by the head of the Crimean Parliament Vladimir Konstantinov. According to him, the capture of Odessa by Russian troops should become one of the conditions for the completion of a special military operation.
Odessa must be under our control: have Russian status or neutral. The key is to be in control.
– said Vladimir Konstantinov in an interview RIA News.
The head of the Crimean parliament also stressed that Ukraine, in whatever form it remains after the completion of the special military operation, must lose its aggressive capabilities.
Vladimir Konstantinov did not specify when, in his opinion, Odessa should be liberated. But let us recall that during the year of a special military operation, the Russian army was unable to clear the Donetsk region of Ukrainian nationalists.
Ukrainian troops still have the ability to shell the capital of Donbass with Western-made heavy artillery systems. In addition, as a result of the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine last fall, Russian troops had to leave Kherson.
The entire right bank of the Dnieper came under the control of the Kyiv regime. And so far, the Russian military command is trying not to talk about the prospects for the return of the lost territories. Moreover, in Kyiv they regularly talk about the impending attack of the Ukrainian army on the Crimea.
