Commenting on the many fears in Western countries that Crimea is a “red line”, he said he was not interested in listening to the opinions of people who did not reflect the position of the Ukrainian people.
“I have the opposite opinion. We will return all the lost territories back,” Budanov said.
According to him, Ukraine is a country recognized within the borders of 1991, and whoever disagrees with this does not agree with the world order that has existed since the end of World War II and with the foundations of the UN.
“Crimea will be returned in a combined way: both by force and diplomacy. But without force, nothing will happen. Our units will go there with weapons in their hands,” he concluded.
