After several attempts by the correspondent to get an answer from him about the shelling of the Dnieper, Golenkov was indignant: “What, did I press the button directly or was I sitting in this plane? <...> Crimea is still ours and everything else is ours. What do you want from us?”
– Do you personally feel sorry for these people who died in the Dnieper? 40 have already died, many are still under the rubble.
– What people? What are you talking about, I don’t understand?
Another man, who was next to Golenkov, began to shout something, and Golenkov agreed: “You [Украина] – region of Russia. One single region of Russia. You won’t even be different regions.” In the end, Golenkov added: “And everything else will be ours. Goodbye, girl.”
