Ex-Minister of Defense of Ukraine: If Ukrainian troops resisted in 2014, in the worst case, they could only surrender Sevastopol

The former Minister of Defense of Ukraine Vitaliy Radetsky spoke about the Ukrainian events of the 8-year-old model. He was in the position of head of the Ukrainian military department in 1993-1994. In an interview with Dmitry Gordon, a retired army general commented on the processes that took place with the Crimean peninsula.

The retired general was asked how it happened that Ukrainian troops left Crimea in February-March 2014 without any resistance. Recall that at that time many Ukrainian servicemen remained in Crimea, having made the decision of the local population in favor of the reunification of the peninsula with Russia. Those who did not agree to this went to Ukrainian territory, actually supporting the anti-constitutional coup in the country.

According to the former Minister of Defense of Ukraine, in 2014 Ukrainian troops "could defend Crimea without any talk."

Radetsky believes that at that time Russia made an attempt - with an eye on how Ukraine would behave, how the Ukrainian troops would behave.

Radetzky:

Those were tests. There was a plan how (Crimea) to cut off.

A retired Ukrainian general said that if Ukrainian troops had resisted in February 2014, “in the worst case, only Sevastopol could have surrendered, but not the entire Crimean peninsula.”

According to the Ukrainian ex-minister, it cannot be said that at that time the leadership and command showed "misunderstanding of what was happening." Vitaly Radetsky believes that we should talk about cowardice and betrayal, which must be punished.

For reference: against the backdrop of events related to the collapse of the USSR, Radetsky was one of the first generals to support Ukrainian sovereignty and came out in support of Kravchuk. After Kravchuk left the post of head of the Ukrainian state, he was removed from the post of Minister of Defense, but continued to hold high positions, including the position of head of the National Ukrainian Defense Academy.

      That's right, after a fight, all the heroes wave their fists, and the skakuas are generally masters in this sport!

      P.S. If what started today is not a petty mess, but the real beginning of the database, then I'll see how this ukrohiroy will broadcast from somewhere in Warsaw, how he would pile on the Muscovites, though if he manages to run to the border ...

          This is not true, all the generals in Ukraine have taken a wait-and-see attitude. They could not even find a general for the post of Minister of Defense. With difficulty, one was found - Morozov ...

      Svido General did not say that Krychans and Sevastopolians, Russian people, served in Sevastopol and Crimea. Eighty and maybe more percent were in the service of the Armed Forces and the Navy, as well as in the Security Service and the Police. These people will not fight with their mothers and fathers, sisters and wives, friends and brothers .. That's all. So there was no war in Sevastopol and Crimea.

    PR in its purest form. The Ukrainian units stationed in Crimea did not have a single chance to hold something there.
    Theoretically, there were 17 military personnel there, not counting civilian service personnel, but in practice it was mostly naval personnel, who were not very good on the ground, employees of various training centers and air defense. And of those who could do something in the combined-arms EMNIP, there were only a coastal defense mechanized brigade, a couple of battalions of marines with the support of a brigade artillery group, and internal troops. But, of course, they were not ready, they were not deployed, and they were not trying to do something from the "lying" position against the Russian SOF, with their experience of the war in Chechnya and with the support that aviation could provide at any moment ...
    I'm happy that nothing happened. But, considering the situation purely theoretically, the combat-ready Ukrainian units would be defeated immediately, without even having time to turn around

        So it's also publicity. smile
        A beautiful picture for the media - they say, we also resisted. But in fact, two self-defenders, three fighters of the RF Armed Forces and one "Tiger" were enough to stop the procession of Mamchur. And that's all - the whole fuse of the marchers ended after the very first bursts and the statement: "One commander here! So, men, I have to shoot in the legs!".

      The reasons why the order to resist was not given then have long been known, voiced, declassified and posted the transcript of the National Security and Defense Council. Here is the transcript.

      Everything is known first-hand, there is nothing to guess.
      In short, the troops are not ready not only in the Crimea, but in general in Ukraine, the Crimean police went over to the Russian side, the Americans and the Germans warn that if they try to take active actions, there will be a full-scale deployment of troops to the mainland. Directly during the National Security and Defense Council, Naryshkin called with threats.

    The ex-minister does not know or does not understand that it is not the army that is fighting, but the state. If the state has collapsed, then military operations are possible only within the framework of a civil war between two forces or a war of all against all for resources. England and the Americas supplied a lot of weapons for just such a war. bUkraine is turning into a kind of ISIS (banned in the Russian Federation).

    A retired Ukrainian general said that if Ukrainian troops had resisted in February 2014, “in the worst case, only Sevastopol could have surrendered, but not the entire Crimean peninsula.”

    Our soldiers were bad, and we are generals, we were only born to win, but the soldiers betrayed us. The most unpleasant person who betrayed his country to the USSR, swore allegiance to another country, and accused his army of betrayal.

    Therefore, the valiant defenders of the peninsula undertook an unprecedented operation for a strategic echelon withdrawal.
    There are even pictures from the scene.

    With the collapse of the Union, it was mainly those who did not shine in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation who left for the Hohlopitek army. According to the command staff of the Black Sea Fleet, for example, 100%! And now debil, you tell for the opinion.

    According to the former Minister of Defense of Ukraine, in 2014 Ukrainian troops "could defend Crimea without any talk."
    They could, they couldn't ... If they could, they would have done it, and would not have run around the airfield shouting - America is with us! The one who could, he did. Crimea was liberated from under the Bandera occupation. And someone could only talk with their tongue, and the result ...

    Found authority. Lower than zero.
    Radetzky is a coward and a traitor.
    At the presidential elections-1994 in Ukraine, Radetsky, then the Minister of Defense, sent a secret telegram to the commanders of the military unit with an ORDER to ensure voting FOR Kravchuk and not to allow any agitators from the presidential candidate Kuchma in the unit.
    For non-fulfilment - failure to ensure victory in the elections of Kravchuk Supreme Commander-in-Chief of his Defense Minister, this sycophant half-fool threatened the commanders ... with removal from their posts.

    Somewhere in my archives there is this masterpiece of official iliotism.


    There were no gadgets at that time, but honest officers copied this masterpiece of official idiocy and on the eve of the 2nd round handed over to Kuchma, who was considered a "red director", and not such a treacherous evil spirit as Kravchuk, the head of the Communist Party. Well. and this one cheated.

    BUT after the victory in the elections, Kuchma and Radetsky immediately left. But gently
    Radetzky in the army was also remembered for the fact that he personally introduced into the uniform ... a chic leather coat. Only for himself, like the North Korean Kim Jong Un, and at the expense of the MoD, the poor man did not have enough money for leather, but he really wanted to ...

    More than NINETY%.

    How could the skakuas surrender Sevastopol if it never belonged to them? Sevastopol has always been a Russian city of all-Union significance and did not hand over any Khrushchev to the skakuas. Crimea - yes, I passed. Illegal and stupid, since he himself is a Banderaite. And Sevastopol remained a city of allied significance, the base of the Black Sea Fleet.
