The radical Islamist Taliban group believes that the occupied Crimea belongs to Russia.

This was stated by a representative of the grouping Zabihullah Mujahid, writes  Octagon Media .

According to Zabihullah, they want to have good diplomatic contacts with Russia.

“We want stability in the region, and we do not want Russia to be at war with any country. With regard to Crimea, I want to say that this is a matter for Ukraine and Moscow. We hope that this problem will be resolved soon. God forbid, so that because of this, there would be a war in the region and other countries would use it for their own purposes, “he said.

At the same time, he said that the group “is on the side of the people who live in Crimea.” 

“If people want to live in Russia, we agree with them,” said a Taliban spokesman. 

Occupation of Crimea by Russia

Russia occupied Ukrainian Crimea , bringing its troops to the peninsula and organizing a pseudo-referendum on its self-determination in March 2014. The self-proclaimed Crimean government said that 96.77% of the peninsula’s residents were in favor of the annexation of Crimea to the Russian Federation.

On March 18, 2014, a so-called “agreement” was signed in the Kremlin on the admission of Crimea and Sevastopol to the Russian Federation.

Western countries did not recognize the annexation of Crimea and imposed sanctions against Russia.

The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine officially announced the beginning of the temporary occupation of Crimea on February 20, 2014. Since the beginning of the occupation on the peninsula, more than 100 Ukrainians have become “prisoners of the Kremlin.”

After the occupation of Crimea in 2014, Russia has been conducting regular military exercises on the peninsula and in the Black Sea, and also imports military equipment, in particular, air defense systems.

In the General Staff of Ukraine, the actions of the Russian military in Crimea are called illegal.

 In December 2019, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution calling on Russia to withdraw its troops from the annexed Crimea and end the temporary occupation of the territory of Ukraine.

  1. The Talies endorse the putinazis? What a shock! Said no one at all. Birds of a feather.
    O’Bidenov condemned girls and women to a life of slavery and rape when he handed Afghanistan to the Talies. Especially the Hazar women who worked for the police.
    Furthermore, he handed one of the very few sources of rare earths to the Talies and their equally vile friends the putinazis and the chicoms. The effects of that catastrophe are hard to gauge, but obviously they will be very bad.

  2. Well, what about those Crimeans who are still patriotically loyal to Ukraine? I wouldn’t move just because I don’t like the politics of an incoming powerful authority. Maybe I don’t have the money and resources to move. But a foreign government sweeping in to take my homeland by force is a reason for me to HATE them. It is NOT a reason to EVER switch my allegiances.

What is your opinion?
