The security service of Ukraine (SBU), will give a legal assessment of the statements of the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Hope Savchenko, previously condemned in Russia for the murder of journalists in the Donbass, and pardoned by the decree of the Russian President, about the “exchange” of the Crimea to the Donbass, said the head of the office of the head of Department Alexander Tkachuk, reports “RIA Novosti”.
“We will give a legal assessment of the statements Savchenko. But it is too early to say whether this statement is to a legitimization of the occupation of the Crimea or is it just the idea that she carelessly formulated. But we definitely drew attention to her statement,” – said Tkachuk.
On Tuesday, Savchenko said that the situation in the zone of the special operation in the Donbas can be resolved only by peaceful means. According to her, to return to Ukraine the Donbass-military means can only be at the negotiating table, with “on time” renouncing claims to the Crimea.
Earlier the Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Nadezhda Savchenko said that Kiev is to return control of the regions of Donbass it is necessary to recognize the annexation of Crimea to Russia.
The people’s Deputy Dmitry Tymchuk believes that the statements of his colleagues in Parliament Hope Savchenko should understand Ukrainian security services and the Prosecutor’s office. “Prepare a request to the Prosecutor General and SBU with a request to give a legal assessment to the statements Savchenko on the subject of appeals to change the territorial integrity of Ukraine”, – said Tymchuk.
The Kremlin said, in reply, that the question of the status of the Russian-occupied Crimea is not a discussion for Moscow.
As you know, in March 2014 after the introduction of troops into Crimea, the Russian Federation illegally annexed the Peninsula, and then began to support Pro-Russian militants in the East of Ukraine. The Ukrainian side has repeatedly stated that on the territory of Donbass are Russian troops and equipment.
