The President of Russia Vladimir Putin in the new year decided to surprise Ukraine – he offered the return of Ukrainian ships from Crimea. Here only politicians and military experts do not much rejoice in the gesture of “good will” from the Kremlin.

That he offered Putin

The Russian President unexpectedly, January 11, took the initiative to give Ukraine the military ships and aircraft from the occupied Peninsula. He doesn’t mind if the Ukrainian military will come and get military equipment, and will also help with the disposal of ammunition.

Taking the opportunity, that is, I want to say, we are ready to continue this process: ready to transfer military ships of Ukraine, which Crimea is ready to pass aviation equipment, armored vehicles. However, it is all in such poor condition, but it is not our business, it is in such almost was, over the years has not been serviced, of course. As for ships, I think it would be better if the Ukrainian soldiers will arrive and will take it. We are ready to help them to transport to Odessa. We are ready to invite Ukrainian military to take part in the disposal of these munitions.
