As it was previously reported, mediation proposals were recently made by Italy on the terms of ending Russian aggression, which provided for the restoration of Ukraine’s control over Crimea in the form of “broad autonomy”.

Those proposals sparked hysterical statements by Dmitry Medvedev, who was Russia’s “intermediate” president in 2008-2012 during Putin’s authoritarian regime and is now deputy chairman of the aggressor state’s national security council.

Medvedev said that the discussion of the fate of the Crimea is allegedly a “national betrayal”, and Italy’s proposals – “the basis for the start of the war”.

Since the “special military operation” against Ukraine, despite all the euphemisms of the aggressor, is nothing more than a full-scale war, Medvedev’s statements should probably be considered a declaration of war to Italy as the proposals’ state-author, or to the whole civilized world that does not recognize Russia’s attempted annexation of the Crimea.

It is noteworthy that at the same time the head of the Ukrainian military intelligence in an interview with “Ukrainian Truth” promised that the Ukrainian military must enter the occupied Crimea by the end of 2022, during the liberation of Ukraine from the Russian invaders.

Later, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky noted that Ukraine plans to sit down at the negotiating table with Russia after the return of territories lost after February 24, and that the liberation of еру Crimea by military means will cost the Ukrainian army one hundred thousand soldiers.
