In turn the statement of the trump commented in the Federation Council of the Russian Federation. As stated by the head of the Federation Council Committee on defense and security Viktor Ozerov, the White house statement on the return of Russia occupied Crimea may be due to the desire of the US administration to “mute” the discontent of Americans by President Donald trump because of his allegedly “Pro-Russian” position.
“I think one reason for this statement is the situation that has developed in recent years around trump. It was done to relieve tension, to show that he is not as Pro-Russian as it may seem, to muffle discontent, which is about him in the American establishment,” — said Ozerov and added that the requirement to return occupied Crimea is the “same impracticable as if Russia demanded that the U.S. return to her Alaska”.
Recall that earlier, the White house confirmed the continuation of sanctions against Russia because of the occupation of the Crimea.
