Ukraine will change its strategy for the "vacation" of Crimea

March 3 () –

The secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine, Oleksiy Danilov, has assured this Thursday that his country can no longer be guided by the same policy that it approved in 2021 with respect to the Crimean peninsula.

On his Twitter account, Danilov wrote this Thursday: “It is time to reissue the strategy. The means to achieve unemployment — political, diplomatic, military and economic, among others — require a change in priorities.”

On March 24, 2021, as he recalled in an interview on national television collected by the Unian news agency, President Volodimir Zelenski issued decree number 17 on the Strategy for Vacancy of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and Sevastopol.

“The initial proposal was to solve this problem through political and diplomatic means,” he explained, adding that the change in circumstances in Ukraine requires a change in the strategy approved in 2021.

“We must consider this strategy, make appropriate changes to it, vote on these changes at a meeting of the National Security Council, and after that, the president must issue a new decree or make changes to the adopted strategy,” he concluded.

Meanwhile, in early February the vice president of the Russian Security Council, Dimitri Medvedev, warned Ukraine that if it attacks the Crimean region there will “inevitably” escalate the conflict with the use of more forceful weapons.

Medvedev then published a message on Twitter in which he maintained that “International Law respects the will of the people”, referring to the vote in which the Crimean population approved its accession to Russia. The referendum, not recognized by the vast majority of the international community, yielded more than 95 percent support for the annexation to the Russian Federation.
