The deputy head of the Russian Security Council, Dmitry Medvedev, said that the Ukrainian capital Kyiv is “a Russian city and it will also be restored.”
Medvedev said that what he writes on Telegram “comes in the context of responding to Ukrainian threats to regain Crimea,” according to Russia Today channel.
Medvedev continued, “Kyiv is the capital of ancient Russia, and secondly, Kyiv is one of the major Russian cities during the Russian Empire, and thirdly, Kyiv is the capital of one of the republics of the Soviet Union.”
He went on to say, “Kyiv is simply a Russian city whose residents have always thought and spoken in the Russian language.”
