Senator Alexei Pushkov ridiculed the statement of former Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov gathered to attack the Crimea with the assault battalion.
Former Secretary of the Ukrainian Council of national security and defense Oleksandr Turchynov understands that the current President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky is not going to have troops in Crimea, so we decided to show “courage” to be the center of attention in the press.
This was stated by Russian Senator Alexey Pushkov, commenting on the statement of Turchynov’s readiness to attack the Crimean Peninsula in the forefront of the assault battalion, according to the Russian Dialogue.
The ex-Secretary of the NSDC announced readiness to personally storm the Crimea, if the Supreme commander of Ukraine will give the order for offensive operations on the Peninsula.
It should be added that Turchynov is regularly noted for provocative statements. So, in 2019, he reported the Ukrainian cruise missile “Neptune”, which, according to him, are able to destroy the Crimean bridge. In Moscow, in turn, urged the West to give a legal assessment of the words of Turchinov.
