Former President of the Czech Republic: the Crimea has always been a part of Russia
The Crimea to Russia has become a natural reaction to the coup in Kiev And the deterioration of Russian-speaking residents, said in an interview with Austrian ex-President Vaclav Klaus.
Assume that the annexation of Crimea to Russia contributed to the aggravation of the conflict, untrue, he said." It is quite clear that the Crimea was not part of Ukraine. The Crimea has always belonged to Russia. I don't see the tragedy. In my opinion, the main reason (conflict) is the internal crisis in Ukraine, " added the former President of the Czech Republic.
The root causes of the fall of Vaclav Klaus sees, for example, that Ukraine does not have coped with the transformation after the collapse of the USSR." This is a divided country, artificially created, It is not the original area with a homogeneous population. For this reason, the transformation for her was more difficult than for other countries, " he said. And the current crisis Is a result of trying to force Ukraine to choose between East And West. However, to put the country before choosing between East And West is the means to eliminate it."
according to him, the conflict in Ukraine must be resolved as soon as possible, But only in the result of negotiations And compromises, and no outside interference." It is a pity that the political leadership of Ukraine can do It, " added Vaclav Klaus.
Former President of the Czech Republic considers it possible that the only possible solution of the Ukrainian fall may be the division of the country, as happened in Czechoslovakia." All my life I have lived where the idea of the division of the country was to me nonsense, I was against it, " said Klaus.- But I saw that the Slovaks really want to be independent, And I realized that the only solution is the consensus partition ".
