Omeljan said in an interview with the online edition “Obozrevatel” that Kiev has lost control of Crimea due to the fact that pensioners on the Peninsula has always had the opportunity to receive Russian pensions.

Thus, the Ukrainian authorities have made a serious strategic error, said the official. “We let the Russian pensioners and other Russians stay in Crimea, to live and to get a Russian pension on the Ukrainian territory”, – angrily said Omeljan.

The Minister called pensioners “Golota” and stated that they “fulfilled the task of the Kremlin” on the “annexation” of the Crimea (as in Kiev called the reunification of the Peninsula with Russia – ed.).

In the same interview, Omeljan stated that it sees no point in the travel of Ukrainians in Russia or the Donbass, if they just do not need to visit their relatives. The Minister urged citizens to wrap their gaze to the West and go to Europe.
