Ukrainian political scientist, doctor of social economy Zinovy Svereda called on Kiev to develop a strategy of military “liberation” of Crimea and Donbass and arrange Russia “Pearl Harbor.” This position was expressed by the expert on Tuesday, December 22, on the air of the TV channel “Direct.”
“Whether we wish it or not, Ukraine must have its own strategy of attack. We must switch, move away from the strategy of defense and looking into the eyes of partners,” the political scientist said.
According to Svereda, the current Normandy format of negotiations does not lead to results, and the position of Germany and France during the negotiations was often ambiguous. In this regard, the political scientist suggested that the United States and the United Kingdom should be involved in the dialogue on the situation in the southeast of the country.
In addition, the expert is convinced that Kiev should develop a strategy for the return of Crimea and the liberation of Donbass by military means. As concrete measures, Svereda suggested that the Russian navy “arrange a new Pearl Harbor.”
In his opinion, the real freedom for Ukraine would be patriotic conscience, the restoration of the army and the creation of its own space forces.
The political scientist added that by such actions Kiev would equate itself to the advanced countries in the issue of protection of its interests, and then Great Britain and the USA would perceive Ukraine as a full-fledged partner.
On December 11, the former Ukrainian ambassador to Minsk Roman Bessmertnyy called for a military operation to seize Crimea and return these territories to Kiev by force.
In turn, the first deputy chairman of the Federation Council Committee on Foreign Affairs Vladimir Jabarov noted that such an idea could only come to the mind of a person who “lost touch with reality.
In July, Ukrainian Navy Commander Oleksiy Neizhpapa said that Ukraine was preparing for a military confrontation with Russia and also announced plans to deploy anti-ship systems with Neptun missiles in the Black Sea. The Ukrainian Security Council described such words as a provocation.
