The ex-president of Georgia, the former head of Odessa region Mikheil Saakashvili told about it in an interview to the journalist Dmitri Gordon. "When there were these events (2014 in the Crimea. — RNS), I then had a conversation with Petro Poroshenko, and he told me it: ‘’You know here, Mischa … you practically got used to the idea that South Ossetia and Abkhazia will never return to Georgia. In the same way we have to get used to the idea that already Ukraine will have no Crimea, but we will change it for membership in the European Union and NATO’’" — Saakashvili said. According to the ex-president of Georgia, he asked Poroshenko why that decided that Ukraine will be accepted in the EU and NATO if Kiev does not react to actions of Russia in the Crimea. "Moreover, it will be the reason you not to accept because you have a territorial conflict" — Saakashvili emphasized. The Crimea became the region of Russia after the referendum held on the peninsula in 2014. 96.77% of voters of the Republic of Crimea and 95.6% of voters in Sevastopol supported entry into structure of the Russian Federation.
