Quote from Podoliak: "Let’s remind ourselves of this once again. NATO countries were not going to attack Russia. Ukraine was not planning an attack on Crimea.

Russian troops are dying in an attempt to occupy another country, not in an attempt to defend their own. This war had no rational grounds, only the sickly imperial ambitions of the Russian Federation."

Background: On 9 May, Putin announced that NATO and Ukraine had been planning "a punitive operation in Donbas" and preparing to "invade historically Russian land, including Crimea."
