The return of Crimea to Ukraine "by non-military means" is out of the question, said the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Pesov, answering journalists' questions.
“For us, this is nothing more than a discussion of the alienation of the territory of the Russian Federation. There can be no other understanding here. It's out of the question. Such statements once again speak of the unpreparedness, unwillingness, inability of the Ukrainian side to be ready to resolve the problem by non-military methods,” Peskov commented on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky’s statement about the return of Crimea “by non-military means.”
