Scott Ritter came to Sevastopol to present his book “Disarmament Race”, published in Russian. He will hold meetings with readers in 14 Russian cities. The Russians, according to him, are very hospitable and friendly. Ritter speaks candidly about politics and makes no secret of his sympathy for our country.
I don’t know how this war will end. But I know that Russia is on the right side, ”she said, answering questions from SevGU students.
The museum “35th Coastal Battery” made a strong impression on the American. He even wished that the inhabitants of the whole world could also visit him.
“People who don’t remember their history have nothing to defend,” Ritter said. – In the museum, I learned the history of Crimea and Sevastopol, the Russian people. The sacrifice of Russian soldiers, sailors and civilians in the defense of Sevastopol is a lesson for all.
He said he hated Nazi ideology. And he is outraged that today he has risen again not only in Ukraine, but also in the United States.
“Sixty miles from where I live, there is a statue of Stepan Bandera,” said Scott Ritter. “His followers of his gather there every summer with brown robes and torches. How is this possible? In Germany, they decide to put German tanks in the Ukraine to fight the Russians. Just think about it! We’re doing it again! Germany has forgotten its history. And the United States, Canada too. It’s unforgivable.
According to him, the best way to stop the conflict on the territory of Ukraine is to stop supplying the Ukrainian army with weapons. He is also sure that an attempt to attack Crimea will cost Ukraine dearly.
– If Ukraine hits Crimea, it will have to pay a heavy price. And Ukraine must understand this in advance, – said Ritter. – There is a concept of containment. kyiv must understand the cost of an attack on Crimea.
