The failures of the Russian invasion of mainland Ukraine, which are obvious to the population of occupied Crimea, are forcing the Kremlin and its subordinate collaborators to search for “excuses” and new treats.

In particular, on April 8, the so-called “chairman of the State Council” of the occupiers, Volodymyr Konstantinov, explained to journalists about “plans for a special operation” that were allegedly “successfully implemented”.

At the same time, the fake “Crimean speaker” directly acknowledged disloyalty to the occupiers of the majority of the population of the Kherson region and announced large-scale measures to “denationalize” the population of the region.

As previously reported, while Russian troops secretly tried to intimidate or abduct Kherson activists in the early days of the occupation, in early April they resorted to systematic public killings, such as the “cleansing” in Novooleksiyivka or the shooting of a boat in the Kakhovka Reservoir.

This “policy” of the occupiers is completely in line with Konstantinov’s current statement that “when I hear the word of Ukraine, I shudder nervously”. It will be recalled that the well-known phrase of the Nazi predecessor of Konstantinov, SS Gruppenführer Hanns Johst, that “when I hear about culture, I release the safety catch on my Browning”.

In addition to the Nazi demands to “remove from circulation” the word Ukraine, Konstantinov also offered to demolish the monuments to Taras Shevchenko and stated that allegedly “there is no Ukrainian people”.

But it is obvious that the Russian Nazis will not limit themselves to a war with the monuments and libraries of the Crimea and Kherson region.

Currently, Russia’s deputy chairman of the Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, said that the sanctions imposed on the aggressor by civilized countries are “aggression against Russia” and allegedly “give the right to self-defense”.

Such Medvedev’s statements should be assessed as a direct threat of terrorist acts and political assassinations by Russian agencies in the territory of civilized countries, aimed at persons involved in the development, implementation and control of unilateral sanctions.
