Turchynov expressed readiness "to storm" Crimea

Ex-Secretary of the national security Council and defence of Ukraine (NSDC) the head of the headquarters of the party "European solidarity" Alexander Turchinov has declared to the edition "Цензор.net" he was ready to personally storm the Crimea when President Vladimir Zelensky will decide on the offensive in the Peninsula.

"I gave answers to the questions of investigators about the reasons of not conducting offensive operations in the Crimea and, if necessary, ready to answer yet. Current President to give an answer to these questions will be much harder. If he suddenly decides to come — I will be at the forefront of an assault battalion", — quotes the edition of his words.

Turchinov also added that Zelensky after the denunciation of the Kharkiv agreements of Moscow, allowing Russian troops to remain on the Peninsula even before accession, no restrictions to "protect the country from aggression and the liberation of the Crimea".

Earlier, Ukraine stated that it had prepared a strategy for "de-occupation of Crimea", but the details of the plan were not disclosed.

Russian authorities have repeatedly stated that the issue of Crimea "closed permanently". Moreover, Moscow warned that the Peninsula is well protected, and any attempt of provocation will be immediately stopped.
