“When the fragile balance of the Russian Federation will be shaken. And it will soon be shattered,” – said Voronchenko in an interview with “New time”.
Earlier, the speaker of the General staff of the Armed forces of Ukraine Vladislav Seleznev said that in the spring of 2014 Voronchenko has prepared a plan for the suppression of the Crimean militia with tanks, however, Kiev refused to start a conflict.
As a result, Voronenko was taken prisoner for three days, and after his release, he returned to Ukraine. In July of this year the country’s President Petro Poroshenko has awarded him the rank of Vice Admiral and appointed commander of the Ukrainian Navy.
