Translated by Ollie Richardson 18:14:02 16/12/2016 russian.rt.com Crimea was never part of Ukraine until 50 years ago, when it moved to Ukraine as a result of the revision of borders by the First Secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union Central Committee Nikita Khrushchev. This opinion was expressed by the former mayor of London Ken Livingstone. “Crimea was never part of Ukraine until 50 years ago, when it moved to Ukraine as a result of the revision of the borders by Khrushchev, who lived and worked there for a long time. But nobody writes and tells us about it, all just paint Russia as a threat,” said Livingston in an interview with RT. According to him, this allows the governments of the US and the UK to increase their military budgets, and the corporations, “which produce all these weapons, continue to be funded by the government conducting such a policy”. The former London mayor also noted that Russia does not pose a threat to the West. Copyright © 2016. All Rights Reserved.
