"I am one of those who calls to get ready to the worst - to open war with Russia," Chubarov said.

"The opinion that the enemy can keep some territories of Ukraine is dangerous for Ukraine itself. If we really take care about Ukraine, if we want it to pan out, and that we live in a country which is highly respected by its neighbors and respects itself, we need to return the Crimea. This is why for us the war will be over only when the Crimea is part of the Ukrainian state," Chubarov stressed.
