The war came to Ukraine from the Crimean peninsula - the president.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy believes that with the return of Crimea under Kyiv's control, there will be peace in Ukraine, the Ukrainian head of state wrote in his Telegram.
He pointed out that it was from the peninsula that the Russian aggression started. The aggressor country's troops entered there.
By returning Crimea, we will restore peace. This is our land. Our people. Our history. We will return the Ukrainian banner to every corner of Ukraine," the head of state said.
Today Ukraine celebrates Crimea's Day of Resistance to Russian Occupation. It was on this day nine years ago that Russia launched an armed aggression against Ukraine. On 26 February 2014, thousands of Crimean Tatars, Ukrainians and representatives of other nationalities came to the Supreme Council of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea to protest against the Russian occupation. The next day Russian military forces entered government buildings in Crimea.
Note that resistance to the occupation persists in Crimea. Partisans distribute leaflets, undermine railway tracks, prepare for confrontation with the occupiers and, of course, wait for the AFU.
