Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of internal policy, information and communication, Republic of Crimea Dmitry Polonsky, commenting on “the Ribbon.ru” the statements of the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Mustafa Jemilev that Russia will abandon the Peninsula, called the MP a “mediocre political dwarf”.
“Cemil is the most mediocre political record player! If you track the frequency of its, so to say, speeches, observed a clear pattern: we went to the Western lords, and received from them money and tells you that a pen was brought, and still the same old and creaky record broadcasts! And given the fact that by the lords every day it got less and less use, like gramophone creaks — just a reason to remind myself. Because life is mediocre political dwarf absolutely is grey and bleak!” — said Polonsky.
Earlier on Monday, February 6, one of the leaders of the banned in Russia as extremist organization “the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar people” Mustafa Dzhemilev has said that Russia will give up Crimea because of the sanctions. “Each day of the sanctions that strike the Russian economy, if this continues, and we hope that they will be strengthened (…), the collapse of Russia is not far off,” he explained.
In January Dzhemilev stated that Kiev will not be able to return the Crimea by military means, as, according to him, it would be associated with large human losses and “loss of the whole Peninsula”.
Cemil, together with other leaders of the Mejlis, Refat Chubarov and Lenur islyamova in September 2015 organized the so-called food blockade of the Crimea. With the support of the militants of the banned in Russia group “Right sector” (PS) they blocked the entry of trucks with Ukrainian goods on the territory of the Russian region.
Also, the extremists didn’t miss repair crews to transmission lines in the Kherson region after the end of November 2015 as a result of undermining the Peninsula was completely de-energized.
Crimea reunited with Russia in March 2014 following a referendum. Kiev does not recognize the results of the plebiscite. In Moscow insist that the procedure conforms to the norms of international law. Russian authorities have repeatedly indicated that the issue of ownership of the Peninsula is closed forever.
