A military base established in Crimea by Russian President Vladimir Putin is a threat not only to our country, but the whole world, Prime Minister Vladimir Groisman told in an interview with Deutsche Welle.

According to Groisman, Ukraine has never been involved in an internal conflict. Having started the military aggression and the illegal annexation, Russia thereby has interfered in the Ukraine’s internal policy and left many people suffering.

- And if Ukrainian Crimea was a resort, now Crimea is a military base posing a threat to the world. Therefore it is very important that we maintain the unity, said Groisman. Russia occupied Crimea in 2014.

The Ukrainian Parliament announced February, 20 2014 an official start date of the annexation of the peninsula.
