According to the politician, the United States has no chance of breaking through the Crimean defenses. A self-sufficient military group is deployed on the peninsula. Any enemy will be defeated at distant approaches.
Also, according to Hempel, the United States should not lie to the world community about the alleged possibility of breaking through the Crimean defense. Russia, according to the senator, is not Afghanistan or Ukraine, and so it was possible to talk to Russia in the 90s, but not now.
“Dreaming is harmless. They can only be heroic on the pages of newspapers. All chances are zero. The aggressor will be destroyed at distant approaches. Modern Russia is neither Afghanistan nor Ukraine. It was still possible to try to speak with Russia in the language of power in the 90s, but not now, “Gempel emphasized.
