Lecturer at the naval College in Newport Lyle Goldstein urged the White house to accept the fact that Crimea became Russian. According to Professor voluntarily Moscow will never abandon the Peninsula and the United States should not build its strategy on ahistorical foundations.

Since then, he said, the Russians have repeatedly fought for the Peninsula, including against Britain, France, Ottoman Empire during the Crimean war and against the Nazis during the Second world war.
According to Goldstein, the fact that Washington once upon a time quite serious about Russian ownership of the Crimea, today, clearly indicates the strangeness of his policies in Eurasia and other parts of the world. Under this Professor understands the attempts by the US to challenge Russia’s claims to Russian blood-soaked Peninsula.
He added that the Russian authorities will never cease to consider their territory of Crimea, so it’s time for Washington to abandon the previous policy and build a new one based on current realities.
