Leaders of the pro-Russian terrorist organization "DPR" and "LPR" Aleksandr Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitskiy arrived with a visit to the annexed Crimea. Duma deputy, Deputy Chairman of the "Russian Community of Crimea" Andrei Kozenko expressed admiration for the arrival of terrorists in the occupied territory.
“It is very important that during the events of Pereyaslav rada the fraternal republics are here, and we thus want to show our unbreakable spiritual connection and that Crimeans empathize with everything that happens in the Donbas,” the Russian official said.
During the visit, which is to last until January 20, the joint press conference of the occupation "authorities" of the Crimea and ORDLO militant leaders are scheduled in the Crimean press center, as well as the solemn meeting in Simferopol at the monument to Bogdan Khmelnitsky, on the anniversary of Pereiaslav Rada, and a forum of Slavic unity "Forever with Russia".
Reference: Pereyaslav Rada is the agreement between Ukrainian leader Bohdan Khmelnytsky and Moscow Tsar Aleksei I in 1654, which the Russian Tsar unilaterally tore up two years later signing the conciliation agreement with Poland in Vilnius.
December 30, in the occupied Simferopol, the monument to "Militia of all time" was unveiled in front of the Council of Ministers building. The opening ceremony of the monument dedicated to the gangs, which assisted the so-called Crimean "authorities" to gain control over the peninsula by means of beatings, torture and abduction of civilians, was attended by the "Head" of the Crimea Sergey Aksenov and the RF State Duma deputy Mikhail Sheremet.
