According to Dzheppar, it will help to dispel the Russian myths about the events of 2014 when Russia annexed the Ukrainian peninsula.

‘Now the Russian propaganda attempts to prove that the so-called referendum took place, there is no opposition and people who live in Crimea are pro-Russian and it attempts to convince the whole world of it. But it is not a truth, it is the twist of the reality of people who resist and there is a thesis on the resistance on the opposition in the campaign of this year dedicated to the fourth anniversary’, Dzheppar emphasized.
