MOSCOW, March 07. /ITAR-TASS/. Speaker of Crimea’s parliament Vladimir Konstantinov said he pledged to do everything possible for Ukraine to reunite with Russia.“I hope that you’ll be able to bring up a new leader in Ukraine. We talked about it several times. We said a new Bohdan Khmelnytsky (organized a rebellion against Polish rule in Ukraine that ultimately led to the transfer of the Ukrainian lands east of the Dnieper River from Polish to Russian control) would emerge and unite the two greatest states, which could not exist separately,” Konstantinov said at a meeting with State Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin and leaders of the lower house’s factions.
“Yesterday I received many calls from the eastern regions of Ukraine and from Odessa. People congratulated me. They said all was great,” the Crimean parliament speaker said.
“Unfortunately, we have big problems,” he said, adding that Ukraine “is part of the united Russian world. After we solve Crimea’s problem (I’m sure we’ll solve it) we must exert maximum effort to protect not only ethnic Russians.”
“In general, all citizens of Ukraine - Russians and Ukrainians should be protected from Nazism and from the West’s pressure that imposes its ideology,” Konstantinov said.
“I believe that Ukraine’s present power will collapse. The power will have serious contradictions within the year. Today instead of making Ukraine a united state it does not hear the interests of Ukraine’s south-east,” the Crimean speaker said.
