We did not take part in their preparation. ” However, the weapons and military equipment available to these "forces" often have a very clear national identity. This writes the Russian edition of The New Times, which asked the experts to analyze the photos from the Crimea.

UPD: 04/03/2014 Liya Akhedzhakova about Ukraine: "They are afraid of us!"
A well-known Russian actress, known for her bold statements against Russian politics of intimidation and harassment, commented on recent events.
How we implanted ourselves, our older brother, with our tanks - and how far they ran away from us as soon as the opportunity arose. Drapanul all. As now, the Maidan wants to get rid of us, and God forbid, again we will step on this rake. Although there are no closer people than Ukraine and Russia, but they are afraid of us. They remember the Holodomor and the Stalinist camps. And most importantly, I read one phrase from Dovlatov: Stalin — yes, the bastard was terrible, and who wrote four million denunciations? This is what worries me the most. Who are these people who are tortured in jail? Who are these snipers who target the eye and the heart? And who voted for the "golden toilet", for thieves and rogues? And for whom they will again vote? .. We are rapidly slipping into the past. And now, when there is an experience of the Maidan, the power, of course, is scared. She will continue to tighten the nuts.

“We cannot say the legitimacy of the acting president,” Russian President Vladimir Putin told reporters. - There is legally only one legitimate president, it is clear that he has no power, of course. But, I have already spoken about this and I want to repeat, only Yanukovych is certainly legally, of course, a legitimate president. ”
According to Vladimir Putin, Viktor Yanukovych “practically surrendered his power”, having signed an agreement with the opposition on February 21, 2014. But "he did not give a single illegal order," the Russian leader said.
"The fact that we took part in the fate of (Yanukovych - RT), we also did this solely for humanitarian reasons ... I think that they would have simply killed him"
The Russian leader told the media that he understood the people of Ukraine, who wanted radical changes, not repair of the facade of power, but stressed that unconstitutional actions should not be encouraged.
“I understand those people on the Maidan, although I do not welcome the fact of a change of power in this way, but I understand those people who still do not require repairs on the facades of the authorities, but require radical changes. They have become accustomed to changing some crooks to other crooks and rogues ”
“Enrichment and stratification of society - we have plenty of these problems and they are very sharp in our country, but in Ukraine it is even sharper, worse, raised to a cube and a square”
During a conversation with journalists, Vladimir Putin said that Russian troops in Ukraine can only be used as a last resort. He recalled that "Russia has a direct appeal of the legitimate president of Ukraine, Viktor Yanukovych, on the use of armed forces to protect the life, freedom and health of the citizens of Ukraine."
“So far there is no need,” Putin said. “But there is such an opportunity.”
At the same time, the head of state said that the recent military exercises held by Russia "are in no way connected with the events in Ukraine." The option of joining the Crimea to Russia is also not being considered, Vladimir Putin stressed.
The head of state told reporters that 22 thousand Ukrainian soldiers and several dozen S-300 units had passed under the control of the Crimean authorities without a single shot.
Regarding the holding of the G8 summit in Sochi this year, Vladimir Putin stressed that the preparatory work is proceeding as planned.
“We are preparing for the G8, we will be ready to host our colleagues, but if they don’t want to come, don’t”
As for the possible introduction of sanctions against Russia, Vladimir Putin warned that those who are going to introduce these sanctions should think about the consequences of such a step.
“I think that in the modern world, when everything is interconnected and everything depends on each other, of course, some damage to each other can be done, but it will be mutual damage. And this, too, should think "
Speaking about the discount on Russian gas, Putin said that it can be canceled if Ukraine does not pay off debts in full. In the event that February deliveries are not paid, the debt will be almost $ 2 billion.
On the question of whether Viktor Yanukovych is alive now, the Russian president told the audience that he saw him literally two days ago, he was “alive and well”.
“But he will still catch a cold at the funeral of those who dismiss such information”
At the end of the meeting, Vladimir Putin stressed that Russia would carefully observe how the rights of citizens are respected throughout Ukraine.
“Our position must be conveyed to all citizens of Ukraine, we have no enemies there, this is a friendly state”
