Analytics for September 30, 2014 by coordinator of ‘Information Resistance’ group Dmytro Tymchuk.
11 years ago, on September 30, 2003, Russia tried to steal a piece of Ukrainian territory having started to build a causeway from its Krasnodar territory to Ukrainian island of Tuzla. The aim was to ‘join’ the island to Russian federation. Like, before 1925 the island of Tuzla was a part of the Taman Peninsula and became an island because of a severe storm. Give it back to us.
There was no armed conflict then. However, the logics of the process is the following: if one country wants the territory of another, it will never stop until it gets too tough. That is what we see today.
Not to draw conclusions from the lessons of history is the worst mistake. No matter how end this current bloody epopee with Russian aggression – we should remember it constantly. Dire economic situation, social problems etc. do not serve as an excuse for pushing the army into the background. Otherwise – we lose Crimea and have the Donbas burning.
