Refat Chubarov, the Chairman of the Mejlis of the Crimean Tatar People, is sure that Ukraine should start preparing for an open war with the army of Russia. He stated it in an interview for 5 Kanal, Joinfo.ua reports.
"I am one of those who call on to be ready for the worst. We must be prepared for open war with Russia. If we are wrong in our predictions, then at least we will be ready if we are not mistaken," said Chubarov.
"If we really care about Ukraine and want Ukraine to succeed, and if we want to live in the country respected by its neighbors and, most importantly, respected by ourselves, we need to return Crimea. So for us, the war will end only when Crimea is a part of the Ukrainian state," he said.
