It was admitted in Ukraine that the migration crisis could benefit Russia in a number of political and economic issues. The current situation is capable of “freeing” the Kremlin from sanctions and changing the West’s attitude towards the issue of Crimea’s ownership.
According to the Glavred portal, a Ukrainian military expert, reserve colonel Oleg Zhdanov, suggested that the European Union could meet Russia halfway and recognize the results of the 2014 referendum on the annexation of Crimea.
According to the expert, this issue may “shift” in favor of Moscow against the background of the migration crisis on the border of Belarus and Poland, and in this case “Russia will be” on a white horse. “
“For Putin, the migration crisis is a multi-step move. He has his own goals and objectives: to force Europe to certify and quickly launch Nord Stream 2, lift sanctions, and recognize Crimea as Russian,” Zhdanov said.
