Exercises in the South of Ukraine with missile firing – a kind of dialogue with the Russian Federation in the intelligible, as the aggressor, language. However, the statement that Ukraine will not reply in case of attacks – weird. This position was expressed by MP from the “popular Front” Alexander Kirsch, the TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
“These exercises is also a kind of dialogue (with Russia – ed.). Just need to speak the language, who understands the aggressor. And such exercises is also a kind of conversation with the aggressor. At least the flavor is clear enough for the aggressor, if only she was not accompanied, at least, strange statements of the Ministry of defence that if you shoot at us, we won’t reply. These statements strange. In some situations you can not answer, but to declare in advance that we your Russian citizens in the Crimea will not touch, it’s weird. It is our people, we care about their safety. We do not want to hurt Russian citizens, who live in Ukrainian Crimea. And it does not need any pre-emptive statement of the MOU, the soothing of the Russian Federation,” said Kirsch.
