Russian President Vladimir Putin claims the deterioration of relations between Moscow and Kyiv is “in fact not linked” to the occupation of Ukraine’s Crimea by Russia. Speaking in an interview on a Russian TV channel, he claimed a “coup d’etat” and the “seizure of power” had taken place in Ukraine, and since then the views of the two countries’ leadership have become “completely opposite,” the Russian news agency RBC reported.

“Since the very moment, we’ve gone our separate ways,” he said.

Only after that, the peninsula “became part” of Russia, he insisted. Yet, talking about the feud between the two countries, Putin suggested that “this wave will sooner or later subside.” UNIAN memo.

Russia annexed Ukraine’s Crimea in March 2014 after its troops had occupied the peninsula.

An illegal referendum was held for Crimeans to decide on accession to Russia. De-facto Crimean authorities reported that allegedly 96.77% of the Crimean population had voted for joining Russia. On March 18, 2014, the so-called agreement on the accession of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol to Russia was signed in the Kremlin. The West did not recognize the annexation in response to which sanctions against Russia were introduced. Ukraine’s parliament voted to designate February 20, 2014, as the official date when the temporary occupation of Crimea began.

    The ‘relationship’ will only improve when the Ivans get the fuck out.

    The ‘relationship’ only went bad when the Ivans invaded everywhere.

    The ‘relationship’ didn’t go bad because shorty is shit at Judo. (I saw him once ‘instructing’ a few young adults,and it was the first time I had seen a shoulder throw done like he told them to, prior to which they were doing it the way I have always seen and done it myself so………)

    The ‘relationship’ didn’t go bad because shorty like to suck Schoolboy’s cocks, although I don’t ever expect him to be questioned about that.

  • The war criminal can’t understand the divorce is final. Time to remove your belongings out of the Ukrainian house, and take them back to the shithole.

  • During Maidan we fully expected that Putler sent his fascist goons into Ukraine to help his crony Yanukobytch stay in office. Then they started shooting Ukrainians in the streets and that left no doubt that the ties were cut.
    If that wasn’t enough to sever all ties, the illegal, immoral invasion of the Crimea left no doubt. Killing, invading, kidnapping, lying, hacking, torture, theft, rape and murder all turned Ukraine away. Everyone that’s not been in a coma since 2013 knows the relationship is gone because of Putler’s actions.
    But he’s right, sooner or later relations will improve but not until the little KGB zit is returned to the worms, his villas looted and the Kremlin walls painted blue.
