Russian opposition politicians do not have a clear position on the Crimea and the Donbas, which is in the hands of the Kremlin, Russian journalist Viktor Maistrenko stated at a press conference, QHA correspondent reports.

“Some part of the Russian opposition has defected to the side of "Crimea is Ours", they say, we are against Putin, but for annexation. All opposition politicians, for example, Sobchak, Yavlinsky, say that Russia did wrong when it commandeered the Crimea and invaded the Donbas. However, they do not have a clear position that the stolen should be returned. Oppositionists say the problem must be resolved with a referendum, to check people's opinion. That is, the issue of the Crimea is dragged out and removed from the agenda of the opposition forces. In my opinion, such a position is quite beneficial to the Kremlin," Viktor Maistrenko said.

Earlier, Russian presidential candidate Ksenia Sobchak said that About 150 thousand people annually leave Russia, which is due to the annexation of the Crimea. According to her, since 2014, after the annexation of Crimea, the number of emigrants from the country reached the level of 1995.
