Zelenskyy confirmed the goal of regaining control of Crimea: We are liberating all our land and people! – New time

In a new video address, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy confirmed the goal of regaining control of the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea, which was annexed by Russia in 2014. The DPA agency informed about it. “I believe that the Ukrainian flag and free life will return to Crimea. We are liberating all our land, all our people,” Zelensky said in a speech published on Sunday evening. According to him, the Ukrainian army, military intelligence and special forces are already taking all necessary steps to liberate Crimea. “And everyone can see it: the occupiers have already started fleeing Crimea. This is the right choice for all of them,” she quoted the Ukrainian president of DPA. However, the agency noted that there is no evidence that Russians are actually moving from the peninsula. On February 24, Russian President Vladimir Putin justified the war against Ukraine, among other things, by the alleged efforts of the Ukrainian leadership to retake Crimea by military force. Russia has repeatedly emphasized that it will not allow this under any circumstances. Recently, there have been massive explosions with devastating consequences and incidents with drones in Crimea. The extraordinary security measures on the peninsula were subsequently tightened even more, reminds DPA. “The Russian presence has made Crimea one of the most dangerous and unfree places in Europe,” Zelensky declared. He also pointed to the suppression of the rights of the Crimean Tatar population.
