This was stated by the Ukrainian pilot, pardoned by Russian President at the request of the widows of Russian journalists, at a press conference.
Nadezhda Savchenko told reporters that if a Third world war is started, Crimea will become Ukrainian.
“And if it will not, then they need to reach out to people and explain that they made a mistake and fix it,” said the Ukrainian pilot.
As a reminder, the exchange of Nadiya Savchenko with Alexander Alexandrov and Evgeny Yerofeyev became known on the morning of May 25th. This operation was prepared under a “confidential” signature stamp. Alexandrov and Yerofeyev, who were captured in Donbass in the past year, have been pardoned by the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko.
