Head of the Crimean Parliament: By the end of next year we will take Odessa, Nikolaev, Kharkov

In 2023, residents of the three cities of Ukraine expect big changes. They will affect the population of Odessa, Nikolaev and Kharkov.


This was stated in an interview with reporters by the head of the Crimean Parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov.

The Crimean politician believes that the settlements named by him will be occupied by the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation by the end of next year.

Until the end of next year, we will take Odessa, Nikolaev, Kharkov, and against this background the fate of these regions will be determined

- says Konstantinov.

Further, the speaker of the Crimean parliament argues, the Ukrainian authorities will begin to fuss, offering peace negotiations to Moscow. According to him, they will take such steps to keep at least the capital under their control, but they cannot be allowed to do this. And by 2024, the politician suggests, the Ukrainian state will cease to exist, and Kyiv will be under Russian control.

As for the rest of the regions, Konstantinov notes, they are of no interest to Moscow.

According to the politician, the special military operation is the final stage of the process that began in 2014 with the Crimean Spring.

Earlier, Konstantinov named the same cities of Ukraine, stating that the CBO should also apply to them. To them he added then the fourth city - Dnepropetrovsk. The politician from Crimea calls these four cities Russian.

        Approximately for 2012-2013, the value of Konstantinov's financial and economic assets (construction holding "Consol" and affiliated structures) was in the region of 150-180 million dollars, I do not think that I became the head of the State Council of Crimea and "transferred" my business to management , Konstantinov has become poorer over the years, so that you won’t scare him with a social pension ... and as for all sorts of statements, Arestovich still lies cooler ...

      Something the forecast of this deputy is too pessimistic ..
      I am sure that soon it will not be necessary to take anything .. Kiev will simply fall. The main thing is to have time to seize the initiative and stop the walking field in the bud. Infrastructure destroyed by 50% and all this is increasing ..
      And there is less and less fighting to the last Ukrainian (huge losses, if only NATO troops are brought in)
      This is my opinion, you can kick it. But this infection (outskirts) needs to be urgently eliminated and dragged with this death like .. The West is running out of steam and you need to seize the moment.
      God bless our squads of attack aircraft, our cause is just. Good luck to you guys .. And we are waiting for May 9 with Victory!

      So I just write about it. You have to be responsible for the market. EVERYONE and you and me and GDP, and not just GDP. laughing And regarding this official, he is not the president, not the minister of defense, and not even the commander of the NMD. So his words have the same value as the words of Orange-Bigg.
      And he is clearly not responsible for his words.

      In form, he is right, but setting a time frame is stupid. Since the enemy will inapplicably use these words in the information war in case of non-realization.

      Just do the actions and statements of our officials are sometimes bewildering. Especially those who are responsible for the defense industry. I propose to ban at the legislative level: Stories, articles, allusions, video stories, commercials and other "patriotic" events. Devoted to future weapons, until they appear in the troops.
      The war is going on, gentlemen, and from 24.04, stories about what will go into the OG-GO-GO series in two years, as well as the phrase "There are no analogues" cause a gag reflex, and not an upsurge.

    Konstantinov is a cunning "louse" (the site is not censored) of the Crimean government. His construction company "Consol" built up all the South Coast, even park areas. Shadow tycoon.

    With our soft-bodied and weak-willed leadership of the country, I would not swear like that, I would keep busy ... Not like they opened their mouths on a big loaf ..
    For Medinsky and Abramovich will immediately "help" once again!

    Quote from Luka Nord
    our cause is right

    I see that you have been stammered, but in some ways you are right: it is reckless to extend the operation for the whole year, the deputy obviously got excited, it is not to roll bags with your tongue. So the cities need to be taken as early as possible, of course, but first Bakhmut, then Kherson.

    Reckless statements, one must somehow restrain oneself in desires.

    These are VERY IMPORTANT statements!
    There is no need to downplay them, with an eye on the enemy.

    It is all the more IMPORTANT to determine the end of this war: only by the victory of Russia, and not by treacherous negotiation concessions (leading to a new war later).

    By the way, if you are not in the know, then the United States has already decided "not to give Odessa to Russia", but who will allow it ...
    And therefore, too, the statement of the head of the Crimean parliament, Vladimir Konstantinov, is so IMPORTANT for us.

    I personally wait "when the traitors are swept from above with a broom":

    The dude swung wide, no matter how he tore his pants ... Although Odessa and Nikolaev still need to be cleaned up, you can’t argue here.

    Excuse me, but the chapel too ... That is, will he take these cities himself along with relatives and friends, or is it from the category of saying not to unload the wagons?

    Take to retreat again? Yes?
    I don’t know about Kharkov and Nikolaev, but you have to be very tough with Odessa, bring it up to the use of heavy artillery and carpet bombing, the garbage that lives there is not a pity. There, like 1-2% of the population retained sanity and sanity.
    According to the degree of cretinism and hatred for the Russian, Odessa takes 2nd place after Lvov. There sits a sick on the head neo-Nazi VERY AGGRESSIVE towards all NON-UKRAINIANS and ESPECIALLY TO RUSSIAN population, like HOME, Odessa mafia, using machinations, took away his house and he has been living HOME for several years, guess why he will take WEAPON? It’s right to kill Russians because they are to blame for the fact that he became a HOME and not the Odessa mafia

    In reality, I wonder if Avdiivka will be taken over by the end of next year?

      Well, if you suddenly deign to join the ranks of the militia from Lviv, and not find fault with Russia ... This is sarcasm, if anything. But about Lviv, not sarcasm! And don’t talk about the ubiquitous SBU. , being in Lvov. And such mouse brothers are just too much.

        I apologize, I did not read your answer to my answer to you, because the comment was deleted - probably I should not have written HERE that I consider Putin a traitor. If you want to write something - write a personal answer if you read my comment and disagreed with something there.

            Ask those who are sitting in the trenches, those who are fighting in the Donbass, and not those who cowardly sit in the rear, telling funny excuses "but they didn't send me a summons", while looking sadly at the columns of volunteers going to the draft board)
            Clinging to other people's achievements, not having the slightest relation to them - oh, how not beautiful)
            And for the umpteenth time I ask - where did I "blame Russia"? You are a professional (not an amateur, just a professional!) climbing other people's comments - maybe you can give an example where I speak specifically against Russia - the country of my people?

            "g) Trolling - provocation and incitement - that is, deliberate deceit, slander, inciting quarrels and strife, a call for unseemly actions."
