The Kremlin has turned the annexed Crimea into a military base. Therefore, retaking the peninsula by military force is now extremely dangerous. This was said in an interview with UA.TV by the national leader of the Crimean Tatar People, People's Deputy of Ukraine Mustafa Dzhemilev.
"The Crimea has now been turned into a kind of a military base. We even have information that six nuclear warheads are there now. Therefore, it is very dangerous to begin military operations there," Dzhemilev said.
According to him, military actions on the territory of the peninsula can lead to ethnic cleansing, similar to those that took place in Chechnya.
