Ukraine has every right to liberate its own territories, including Donetsk, Crimea and Kherson, using any kind of weapon, Ukrainian presidential advisor Mykhailo Podolyak tweeted on Aug. 14.
“Let me remind you the basics... Crimea is not a part of Russia, same as Donetsk or Kherson,” he tweeted.
“ZNPP is not Russian facility, but a Ukrainian nuclear power plant. The Russian Federation is an invader and a murderer that started the war. Ukraine has all the rights to liberate its territories, using any kind of weapon.”
Earlier the secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, Oleksiy Danilov, called for patience regarding the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, since the terms are determined by the military, led by its supreme commander.
