I am not thinking of Ukraine right now. Well, [I’m thinking of] Ukraine as well … I wish this country all the best. It has shown, with courage and blood, that it is indeed a nation. I think that everything will go well for Ukraine even without Crimea. The West won’t be stingy with its assistance to turn Ukraine into a showcase of democratic values. Crimeans will surely bitterly regret that they separated.

But I am more occupied with the foreseeable future of my own country – Russia. It looks dark.

I want to ask those of my countrymen who are happy about the future pre-determined annexation of Crimea (who seem to make up the majority): do you even understand what this trophy will cost all of us?

No?
