Crimea – accession to Russia

Crimea – accession to Russia

The “Information Resistance” group has obtained some details about the events that triggered today’s hasty decision by the Crimean parliament on the Autonomous Republic of Crimea’s accession to Russia.

In particular, according to our sources, yesterday, the Ukrainian Joint Staff worked out a plan to conduct a military operation in Crimea.

This decision on a military operation followed the Russian authorities’ statement that there are no Russian troops in the Crimea. This statement allowed the Ukrainian armed forces to plan the operation without fear of provoking a full-blown armed conflict with Russia.

By morning today, restaffing has been completed for certain units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to participate in the operation. Earlier, the 79th Independent Airmobile Brigade (Nikolayev) moved out to the [Perekopskiy] Isthmus in order to support the concentration of forces. We do not possess information about the starting date of the planned operation.

According to some sources, the Russian authorities uncovered the ongoing preparations (either by means of analysis, or as a result of information leakage), which prompted the Kremlin to demand that the “puppet” Crimean Parliament drop the idea of the referendum, and to make an immediate decision on accession to Russia.

What decisions will be made by the Ukrainian military and political leaders in this situation remains to be seen in the near future.
