Candidate for the US presidency from the Republican party, billionaire Donald trump said that he considers necessary for the USA to intervene in “the Crimean dispute” between Russia and Ukraine. According to trump, this interference can cause a Third World war.
Speaking to voters on August 1 in Ohio, the Republican candidate, voiced his assessment of the current geopolitical situation in the world with respect to this “acute” for the United States “Crimean issue”.
“Attempts by the US to take away by force the Crimea, the Russian Federation, and the return of the Peninsula Ukraine could trigger World war III… You want to start a Third world war, only to return back to the Crimea?”, said Donald trump, quoted the American edition of Politico.
He also reminded reporters of bullying about his an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, after which he was accused of ignorance of the fact that Crimea joined Russia in 2014.
“Of course, I know perfectly well about this fact and about when it happened. It was about two years ago,” said trump.
Earlier, the Republican candidate for President of the United States caused an uproar, saying that, if elected head of state, is ready to consider recognition of Crimea with Russia, as well as the lifting of anti-Russian sanctions.
“The people of Crimea, as far as I know, would prefer to be with Russia, but not where he was before. And it must be considered,” added trump.
Moscow greeted these statements with cautious optimism in the style of “wait and see”, but the Ukrainian authorities were not as Mature and called trump a marginal threat and a clown.
