The State Department urged Ukraine to forget about the Crimea for the sake of ending the conflict with Russia

Ukraine must abandon the idea of ​​returning Crimea in order to end the conflict with Russia as soon as possible and avoid the destruction of the country's infrastructure. Such an opinion in an interview with a TV channel RBC expressed political US Department of State and Defense consultant Edward Luttwak.

Ukraine's infrastructure is being destroyed on a daily basis, and this is a very good reason why Ukraine needs to end the conflict. To end the conflict, they need to forget about Crimea 

the consultant said.

The expert is sure that Kyiv will not be able to return Crimea after the end of the conflict with the Russian Federation. But at the same time, it will retain the ability to make independent decisions, such as joining NATO.

The choice is for Ukraine 

Luttwak emphasized.

The State Department consultant noted that the solution should be simple: a ceasefire, thousands of experts to monitor the plebiscites (in the new Russian regions. - Approx. ed.), the plebiscites themselves, and then "everyone returns home."
At the same time, the West can force Ukraine to a peaceful settlement by ceasing to provide assistance to Kyiv. And sanctions against Russia can be used for the same purposes, the expert concluded.

Formerly Swedish media have given advice to Kyiv on the seizure of the Crimea. In particular, it is proposed to cut the land corridor to the peninsula.

    Trading on the blood of people is a favorite business of the Anglo-Saxons, the more blood, the more gold! It makes no sense to pay attention to a bunch of experts here and there, real things love silence. The ruin of a quasi-state without a future, therefore, we can only talk about the fate of the territories and the people who remained there, of course, without the Natsiks!

    His interview is quite interesting, although not entirely pleasant for us. And yes, about the plebiscites: Luttwak spoke only about the DPR and LPR ...

    ... forget about the Crimea, Nikolaev, Odessa, Kyiv... Lviv - in general, about everything, up to the very Polish border.

    Well, this is unacceptable for us.

      From what?
      On the contrary, joining NATO guarantees a decrease in the activity of amateur heroes and their nomadic mortars and other UAVs.
      For the answer for such initiative will arrive already in the NATO country, which puts on the agenda the question of sending contingents of the old NATO countries to the conflict zone. Which they are certainly terribly happy about, yeah.
      So for amateur performance, the heroes will receive a hat very quickly and harshly, and they will bring us apologies and compensation.
      (for example, during the Korean War of 1950, the US Air Force mistakenly fired on a military airfield (Dry River) on the territory of the USSR. They immediately apologized and compensated. And fighting continued over the 38th parallel ...).

        Russia is among the enemies of the United States, and its President Vladimir Putin threatens all Americans who love freedom. This was stated by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Mark Levin's radio show. His interview is published on the website of the US government.
