MOSCOW, February 27. /TASS/. Georgia’s aggression against South Ossetia in 2008 supported by the West and unwillingness to recognize results of the referendum in Crimea in 2014 are points of no return, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council Dmitry Medvedev said in an article for the Izvestiya newspaper.
"Two dates can be considered to be the points of no return. The first is fall of 2008, when the Western world supported the aggression of Georgia against the Ossetian people," the politician said. "The aggressor was repelled quickly and firmly at that time," Medvedev noted.
The second pivotal point is "spring of 2014, when the people of Crimea expressed their will at the legal referendum, having returned forever to the historical motherland," the official said. "It caused violent, impotent tantrum of the Western world, which continues until now," he added.
