On the contrary of February 24 of the last year, when the armed de-occupation of Crimea was not considered, now we have an option and an opportunity.
Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk announced this during the presentation of educational programs for the preparation of the personnel reserve for the reintegration of Crimea, UNN reports.
"Ukrainian Crimea has been under temporary occupation for over 9 years. But on February 24, 2022, our strategy changed, if until then we did not consider the armed de-occupation of the Crimea Peninsula, now we have an option and an opportunity, and our soldiers are proving it. We understand that this possibility is more than real. We believe that this will happen as soon as possible. Of course, we will use all possible tools and options available to us: diplomatic, economic, and political," Vereshchuk said.
