Son of Nikita Khrushchev, a scholar and Professor at brown University in the United States, Khrushchev responded to the claim of Ukrainian journalists, who said that the Crimea was annexed to Russia illegally. If we stick to the principle of inviolability of borders, Ukraine needs to return to the Soviet Union, parried a descendant of the Soviet leader.
The son of the first Secretary of the CPSU Central Committee in an interview with “Komsomolskaya Pravda” commented on his statement that the transfer of Crimea to Ukrainian SSR in 1954 was not political, but purely technical solution. Sergei Khrushchev did not abandon his words that many took as an attempt to justify the act of his father.
The Professor noted that he did not agree with the position of Kiev on the illegal reunification of the Peninsula with Russia in 2014. “If we talk about the inviolability of borders, the first thing you need to Ukraine back in the USSR”, — he said.
However, Sergei Khrushchev stressed that the boundaries are never fixed, and “incorporation of Crimea into the Russian Federation is a fait accompli”.
Yesterday in the program “Gordon” on the TV channel “112 Ukraine” Sergei Khrushchev said that the transfer of Crimea to Ukraine, there was no policy, as attempts “to appease the Ukrainian bureaucracy”.
The decision was made for reasons of economic expediency: the construction of a canal in the Crimea, which “is now buried”, the state planning Commission decided that it was better to work under one entity, said the son of the Soviet leader.
