Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs checks media reports on the creation in the Chernivtsi region (Ukraine) of a mountain brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Romania instructed the consulate in Chernivtsi (Ukraine) to clarify with the Ukrainian authorities the veracity of information about the establishment and the motives for creating a mountain brigade in the Ukrainian part of Bukovina. About this with reference to the portal "Ajerpress" writes news agency TASS. Earlier in the Ukrainian press there were reports that the mountain brigade in the Chernivtsi region is being created to protect against "possible territorial claims from Romania."

Romanian Ministry of Foreign Affairs checks media reports on the creation in the Chernivtsi region (Ukraine) of a mountain brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

Recall that the mountain brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bukovina appeared only a few days ago. At least, such information was published by leading Ukrainian media. According to these media reports, Lieutenant Colonel Vasily Zubanich was appointed commander of the brigade.

TASS cites a statement by the official representative of the Romanian foreign ministry:
The desire of the Romanian side to obtain from the Ukrainian side as soon as possible complete and verified information about the authenticity of communications on this topic in the press was conveyed. A firm hope was expressed that the Ukrainian state did not take such a measure, since Romania, with its position and actions, unconditionally supports the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, and Ukrainian officials repeatedly expressed high appreciation of the neighboring state in connection with this permanent and firm position of Romania.

For reference: Chernivtsi region of Ukraine - the territory of Northern Bukovina. This territory became part of the Ukrainian SSR in 1940. The ethnic composition of the region is heterogeneous. About 20% of the population are Moldovans, many of whom consider themselves Romanians.

      Givi denied the fakes of the Ukrainian media about his battalion and expressed his opinion about them. Givi also spoke about the new appointment of the "Somalia" battalion. We will remind, earlier in the Ukrainian media there was information that Givi refused to obey the head of the DPR Alexander Zakharchenko and led a rebellion against him.

      And I liked the reaction of the Romanian Foreign Ministry, our Foreign Ministry and the embassy in Ukraine should take such actions into service. It is necessary to be more active and assertive. to deprive our "foreign partners" of freedom of maneuver.

      According to a diplomatic agreement signed by Nikolai Shutov (from the USSR) and Eduard Mezinchesk (from Romania), Zmeinyy Island was transferred to the USSR from May 23, 1948.
      The status of Zmeinogo was important in the consideration by the UN International Court of Justice of the territorial dispute between Ukraine and Romania on the delimitation of the continental shelf and the exclusive economic zone, rich in oil and gas reserves. On February 3, 2009, a decision was made according to which Snake was recognized as an island, not a rock, which Romania tried to prove. As a result, Snake remained in the status of Ukrainian territory (s)

      Historically, Russian lands begin from the Carpathians themselves ... The fact that there the Poles and Lithuanians grabbed and assimilated in difficult times for us does not mean that now we should leave it to them to continue experiments on Russian people ... Also the Galician-Volyn principality the first revolted against the Golden Horde and against the Poles, the Russian people rose up there more than once ... And then they began to teach children in schools in Polish and teach history as they needed and only a hundred years later the Russians suddenly began to call themselves Ukrainians, and after another hundred years they separated from Russia and began to prohibit the Russian language and considered Russia to be enemies ... That's how people erase the memory ...

      No, of course! They’ll just give away 80% of the shelf near Zmeinyy Island. You need to see how the Romanians squeeze Ukrainians from the mouth of the Danube. Before you write such nonsense, you need to look at the map and go over the news. And why did the Romanians take care that Ukraine began to create a military special forces, and obviously of a defensive nature. Although there the devil himself breaks what the Ukrainians form.

    "Romania, with its position and actions, unconditionally supports the independence, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine"

    Of course it supports only without Bukovina. Ukrainians Romanians Bukovina and they give them a hat Gugutse, so that they would not freeze in winter!

    Quite possibly. There was already such a precedent in the Civil War. There is a legend that Grigory Ivanovich Kotovsky, forming his detachment from a lousy freeman, at the meeting decided to call his detachment a "brigade" because of the seriousness and beauty of the term ...

    “In April, after the establishment of Soviet power in Odessa, Kotovsky received the first official Soviet post - the military commissar of the Ovidiopol military commissariat, and at the same time he was offered to create a group for underground work in Bessarabia. 60 bayonets did not meet the ambitions of “Ataman Hell.” Soon he received the position of commander of a horse detachment of 80 people of the Transnistrian detachment of the 44th rifle regiment of the 3rd Ukrainian Soviet army.

    The circumstances of the formation of the detachment are interesting. This combat unit existed only on paper: there were no horses. Grigory Ivanovich recalled his horse-stealing youth and offered to take the horses away from the neighboring Romanian territory. Forty Kotovites swam across the border river Dniester and, 15 kilometers from the border, attacked a stud farm and stole 90 of the best racehorses. "
