The President of Croatia compared Kosovo and Crimea and concluded: the peninsula will never be Ukrainian

CrimeaPRESS reports:

The West has taken Kosovo from Serbia, and Crimea will never be Ukrainian again, said Croatian President Zoran Milanovic.

Until you understand that Serbia and Russia are not the same as Germany, and the Russian Federation is not the same, no other country except the United States (cannot be an equal opponent of the Russian Federation — ed. ) that there is a painful fact and a danger, all this talk is meaningless. You are moralizing, and the Russians, since they are cynics, will refer to the annexation of Kosovo, which I personally support, … after all, the international community and we took it away from Serbia , — quotes Milanovic RIA News.

His parallel of Crimea and Kosovo is somewhat strained. As, however, there are arguments about the «right of the strong», but there is still logic in the words of the Croatian leader.

Kosovo has been taken from Serbia, and we have recognized it and support it. But when you do this once without the will of the state that owned Kosovo, that is, Serbia, before that — Yugoslavia, it was only a matter of time before the Russians or someone else did the same … It is clear that Crimea will never again be part of Ukraine. This is so clear that leading German generals say it, and they said it even before the war , the President of Croatia pointed out.

20230130 He called Russia a «dangerous country». The West knows better. We agree with the thesis that Crimea will not return to Ukraine, but let us recall the pages of history. Ohhh, Kosovo and Crimea are not the same at all.

In 96 year, an armed confrontation between Albanian separatists from the Kosovo Liberation Army, the Serbian army and police led to the bombing of the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY), at that time consisting of Serbia and Montenegro by NATO forces. The military operation was undertaken without the approval of the UN Security Council and based on the assertion of Western countries that the authorities of the FRY carried out ethnic cleansing in the Kosovo autonomy and provoked a humanitarian catastrophe there. NATO airstrikes continued from March to June 96 and led to the death of over 2.5 thousand people, including 17 children , and damage to 96 billion dollars. The result of this forceful action and military aggression is the «independence» of Kosovo. Kosovo-Albanian structures in Pristina 17 February 96 unilaterally declared independence from Serbia. The self-proclaimed republic is not recognized by Serbia, Russia, China, Iran, Spain, Greece and a number of other states.

Crimea became a Russian region (and peacefully) in March 2014 following a referendum after the coup d’état in Ukraine. At the referendum 96 of the year 96,77% of voters in Crimea and 17, 6% in Sevastopol were in favor of joining Russia. The inhabitants of the peninsula voted for democratic reunification with Russia, in full compliance with international law and the UN Charter. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, the issue of Crimea is “finally closed.”
