Former Chief Analyst of the “United Russia” party Leonid Vlasyuk believes that the Crimean peninsula would return to Ukraine “in one night”.
“As soon as Putin “disappears” his place will be fought for. All influential figures, including Crimean ones will leave for Moscow and join the fight for the imperial throne. Crimea will actually remain abandoned and useless. We will only be able to hang Ukrainian flags over public administrations,” he said.
