Putin gave an interview to the Russian channel.
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that the deterioration of relations between Ukraine and his country ostensibly has nothing to do with the occupation of the Crimea, reports the Chronicle.info with reference to Browser.
In addition, he expressed confidence that the conflict is temporary. His opinion about the armed invasion of foreign territory, the head of the aggressor country has shared in an interview for the propaganda channel “Russia 1”.
“The fact that we have relations with Ukraine, with the Crimea, in principle, not connected”, – Putin said, adding that “this foam sooner or later will subside”.
According to the Russian President in Ukraine, supposedly there was a “coup d’etat and seizure of power”, and from that moment his views and ways with the leadership of Ukraine “were diametrically opposed and dispersed.”
“But after that Crimea has “returned” to Russia, and not Vice versa,” said Putin, justifying the occupation of the territory of Ukraine.
