MOSCOW, August 10. /TASS/. Claims by Kiev that Russia should pay reparations for its reunification with Crimea and that it should return the peninsula to Ukraine are being raised on the eve of the Crimean Platform and have no prospects, First Deputy Chairman of the Russian Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Vladimir Dzhabarov told TASS on Tuesday.

Earlier, Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Reintegration of Uncontrolled Territories Alexei Reznikov stated in an interview that Russia would pay Ukraine reparations for reuniting with Crimea.

“Any reparations are out of the question. Then we can ask for the reparations for the fact that at the time they acquired Malorossiya, Novorossiya that had never been [part of] Ukraine and belonged to the Russian Empire. They were handed over to Ukraine by the Bolshevik government in order for this union republic to be larger, so it would have more proletarians,” the senator said.

He added that at the time, Crimea didn’t simply join Ukraine but was handed over with all its land and property “which was built at the time by the Soviet Union, above all, Russia.”

“I understand that all this talk emerges in light of the approaching Crimean Platform. Well, then this agency [on Reintegration of Uncontrolled Territories] needs to demonstrate that they are earning their keep, they need to show some activity. Although I am sure that each one of them realizes that work on returning Crimea is absolutely futile, because Crimea is the subject entity of the Russian Federation and it will never return to Ukraine where it ended up because of Khrushchev’s willful error,” he noted.

The senator said that Kiev’s attempts to return Crimea are “time and effort spent in vain” and expressed hope that sooner or later the Ukrainian authorities would realize this and would “leave Crimea alone.”

Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky announced the creation of the Crimean Platform to coordinate efforts on the international level to reinstate Ukrainian jurisdiction on the peninsula. The venue should open with a so-called inauguration summit scheduled for August 23, 2021. It is planned that it will function on several levels: heads of state and government, foreign ministers, lawmakers, a network of experts. Earlier, Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry promised to name the participants closer to the event. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba previously said that 32 countries had already confirmed their participation and Kiev hopes that a joint declaration will be approved as a result of the forum.

After the coup d’etat in Ukraine in February 2014, Crimea and Sevastopol held a referendum, in which 96.7% of Crimeans and 95.6% of Sevastopol voters chose to secede from Ukraine and join Russia. Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the reunification deal on March 18, 2014, which the Federation Council (upper house of the Russian parliament) ratified on March 21, 2014. Despite the convincing results of the referendum, Kiev has refused to recognize Crimea as part of Russia.

    • That fake referendum still kills me. They expected people to believe that the little green men invaded, took over government buildings, kidnapped their neighbors, beat women and children, arrested their sons in the military, took over the TV and radio stations….and the citizens loved it SO much that 97% wanted to join Moskovia…again…and leave their more prosperous country. The whole thing is as preposterous as a clown’s face.

      • The evil apparatchik in the article represents the exact position of the putinazi regime. What options are available to the victims of new putinazi imperialism?
        Ukraine can forget about any practical help in removing the occupiers from Biden or the Dems in general. Ditto the Trump wing of the GOP. The Budapest signatories seem to think that their responsibility to protect the integrity of Ukraine’s borders excludes military action. It even excludes the type of meaningful sanctions that would force a 180° turn by the occupiers.
        The Crimea Platform is an excellent initiative, but much more is needed.
        Ukraine needs to embark on a programme that will probably take 10-20 years to come to fruition. That is, to build the armed forces into a formidable enough unit to remove the occupiers and withstand the counter attack. To do that, it will need a roaring economy.
        It is also advisable to build further on the Ukraine/Turkey strategic partnership.

  • “They were handed over to Ukraine by the Bolshevik government in order for this union republic to be larger, so it would have more proletarians,”
    The shit nugget conveniently left out the fact that mafia land agreed to the existing borders at the time when the SU evaporated and then once more when they signed the Budapest Memorandum.

    “Despite the convincing results of the referendum, Kiev has refused to recognize Crimea as part of Russia.”
    The “referendum” was never convincing. It was an obvious farce, a circus show for the clowns of this world. And, even if the referendum had been convincing, it broke the law … it should never have been conducted. Either way, the peninsula belongs to Ukraine and that is a hard fact.
