Russian President Vladimir Putin said at a March 4 press conference: “These were local self-defense forces. We did not take part in their preparation. ” However, the weapons and military equipment at the disposal of these “forces” often have a very clear nationality. About this writes the Russian edition of The New Times, which asked experts to analyze photos from the Crimea.

UPD: 03/04/2014 Liya Akhedzhakova about Ukraine: "They are afraid of us!"
The famous Russian actress, known for her bold remarks against the Russian policy of intimidation and harassment, commented on recent events.
How we planted ourselves, older brother, with our tanks - and how far they ran away from us as soon as the opportunity arose. Drapanuli all. As Maidan now 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 sentence from Dovlatov: Stalin - yes, the scum was scary, and who wrote four million denunciations? This is what excites me the most. Who are these people who torture in jail? Who are these snipers who aim in the eye and in the heart? And who voted for the "golden toilet", for thieves and crooks? And for whom will they vote again? .. We are rapidly slipping into the past. And now, when there is the experience of the Maidan, the government, of course, is scared. She will continue to tighten the nuts.

UPD: 03/04/2014 Vladimir Putin: There is no need to send troops to Ukraine yet
On March 4, Russian President Vladimir Putin met with Russian and foreign journalists to state his position on events in Ukraine.
The conversation took place at the president’s residence in Novo-Ogaryov. It was attended by several dozen media representatives. According to Vladimir Putin, what happened in Kiev can only be assessed as "an unconstitutional coup and armed seizure of power."
Despite the fact that Viktor Yanukovych has no power, he is currently the only legally legitimate president, Putin told reporters. Only the parliament of Ukraine has partial legitimacy today, the rest of the authorities - no, the Russian president emphasized.
“This cannot be said about 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’ve already spoken about this and I want to repeat it, this legitimate president, purely legally, of course, is only Yanukovych. ”
According to Vladimir Putin, Viktor Yanukovych “practically surrendered his power” by signing 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 he would simply be killed there”
The Russian leader told the media that he understands the people of Ukraine, who wanted radical changes, rather than repairing the facade of the government, but stressed that unconstitutional actions should not be encouraged.
“I understand those people on the Maidan, although I do not welcome the fact that the authorities changed in this way, but I understand those people who still do not require repairs of the facades there, but require fundamental changes. They’re already used to changing some crooks for other crooks and crooks ”
“The enrichment and stratification of society - we have plenty of these problems and they are very acute in our country, but in Ukraine it’s even sharper, worse, squared and squared”
During a conversation with reporters, Vladimir Putin said that Russian troops in Ukraine can only be used as a last resort. He recalled that "Russia has a direct appeal from the legitimate president of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych about the use of armed forces to protect the life, freedom and health of Ukrainian citizens."
“There is no such need so far,” Putin said. “But there is such an opportunity.”
At the same time, the head of state said that the recent military exercises by Russia "are in no way connected with the events in Ukraine." The option of joining Crimea to Russia is also not being considered, Vladimir Putin emphasized.
The head of state told reporters that 22 thousand Ukrainian troops and dozens of S-300 installations went under the control of the Crimean authorities without a single shot.
As for the G8 summit in Sochi this year, Vladimir Putin emphasized that the preparatory work is being carried out according to plan.
“We are preparing for the G8, we will be ready to host our colleagues at home, but if they don’t want to come, we don’t need to”
Regarding the possible imposition of sanctions against Russia, Vladimir Putin warned that those who are going to impose these sanctions should think about the consequences of this step.
“I think that in the modern world, when everything is interconnected and everyone depends on each other one way or another, of course, you can do some harm to each other, but it will be mutual damage. And they should also think about it. ”
Speaking about the discount on Russian gas, Putin said that it could be canceled if Ukraine did not pay off its debts in full. In the event that the February deliveries are not paid, the debt will be almost $ 2 billion.
When asked whether Viktor Yanukovych is alive now, the Russian president told the audience that he had seen him literally two days ago, he was "alive and well."
“But he will still catch a cold at the funeral of those who release such information”
At the end of the meeting, Vladimir Putin stressed that Russia will closely monitor 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”
