The statement of the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko about the need to strengthen the international regime of de-occupation of the Crimean Peninsula – “blunt talk”. This opinion Facebook expressed by the Ukrainian diplomat, former Consul General of Ukraine in Istanbul, the head of the charity Fund “Maidan zakordonnih Ref” Bohdan Yaremenko.

“What is this, another stupid talk from the President and Supreme commander in the fifth year of war and occupation? Who “must strengthen” the international regime? Miners, doctors, football players? But what are exactly are you? What to strengthen? What is the international regime of de-occupation? Geneva or Geneva+?” – he wrote.

Yaremenko wondered how many ships and what class in the four years of the presidency Poroshenko received the naval forces of Ukraine.

“Not with a presidential plant? But at the same time the Russians? And how many do we need? Where will the confidence in success, if the one who should provide it, it sounds like an empty barrel? And he seriously thinks that’s enough? And army of advisers and civil servants on the payroll, too, thinks that I have “Shavat”?” – said the diplomat.


Today Poroshenko in Facebook there was a record as follows: “We must strengthen the international regime of de-occupation of the Crimean Peninsula. At a time when Russia heightened pace militarytime Peninsula, restoring the Soviet base and transforming the Crimea in the “island of freedom”, we must make the best use of the available international legal mechanisms to convert the occupied Peninsula in a very heavy burden for Moscow.”

Russia annexed the Crimea and Sevastopol after the military blockade of Ukrainian military units and illegal referendum on 16 March 2014. The annexation of Crimea by Russia is not recognised by Ukraine and most countries of the world.
