Former US ambassadors in Kiev: coronavirus will help “return” Crimea to Ukraine

133

The West must put pressure on Russia using the COVID-19 pandemic. The ultimate goal of this pressure would be the “return” of Crimea to Ukraine.


Such a proposal was expressed on the pages of the NPR publication by Stephen Pifer, John Herbst and William Taylor. These three gentlemen at different times served as the United States Ambassador to Ukraine.

Published material is an appeal to the American authorities. In it, former ambassadors draw the attention of Donald Trump to a unique opportunity to put pressure on Russia, taking advantage of the moment. They believe that the Russian Federation has been significantly weakened by the coronavirus pandemic, a sharp drop in oil prices and a depreciation of the ruble. Right now, Moscow, according to ex-diplomats, may be more accommodating than before.

Former ambassadors believe that pressure on Russia will help stop the war in the Donbass and force Moscow to surrender Crimea to Ukraine.

The plan of ex-diplomats is that Donald Trump, together with the leaders of Germany, France and Ukraine, should offer Russia the lifting of sanctions in exchange for transferring the peninsula to Ukraine and refusing to support the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. According to this plan, part of the anti-Russian sanctions can be lifted immediately after the transfer of Crimea to Kiev, and then consider the possibility of lifting the remaining restrictions.

      Crimea should be forgotten. For any politician, the return of the Crimea is a disgrace and it is clear that no one will do it. The ambassador carries nonsense in order to inspire the unreasonable Ukrainian inhabitant, steadily endure the sale of land and sinking into even greater poverty.

    Former US Ambassadors in Kiev
    Just those who made every effort to the color revolutions (2 Maidan) in Kiev. Therefore, "return the Crimea", "withdraw the troops" sounded again, and of course "the power in Russia was shaken," all that was left was to push it with a little finger. It’s a bit early that the Americans forgot about their problems and started singing about Russia. Here, too, the Italian rag began to demand an apology from the RF Ministry of Defense, the Germans were singing along to them about hiding the number of sick and dead in Russia, well, you can not even remember about the Poles and the Balts. It turns out that having screwed up on the coronavirus, they deliberately switched to our country, distracting their inhabitant from pressing problems and transferring his fear to another object.

    The West must put pressure on Russia using the COVID-19 pandemic. The ultimate goal of this pressure would be the “return” of Crimea to Ukraine.

    Smaller American diplomats. Why only Crimea?

      Regarding residents of the Crimea suffering under Russian occupation, this is the generally accepted opinion in the west. Everyone knows that it’s good in the West, and everyone is eager to go there, Ukraine is also eager for the West, and how then can it be explained that part of the Ukrainians decided to stay in Russia, only by occupation and violent restraint in it.
      Any explanations contradicting this are not accepted, separate articles where it is written that “Russians” live in Crimea are considered an exotic point of view
      So why not try to convince anyone in the West and strive to change public opinion, it’s not possible and it’s not worth it, everyone has their own And we must work calmly and continue to fight for our country, its temporarily seized territories, etc. It’s time to get used to the negative officialdom of the Westerners

    The plan of ex-diplomats is that Donald Trump, together with the leaders of Germany, France and Ukraine, should offer Russia the lifting of sanctions in exchange for transferring the peninsula to Ukraine and refusing to support the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics. According to this plan, part of the anti-Russian sanctions can be lifted immediately after the transfer of Crimea to Kiev, and then consider the possibility of lifting the remaining restrictions.
