According to her, earlier in Kiev they wanted to return Crimea.

“Now desires are more modest - just a bright event is needed,” Zakharova wrote in her Telegram channel.

She noted that in her opinion, the reason for this behavior is hopelessness.

“Masochists,” the diplomat added.

Earlier it became known that Kiev plans to cancel the free economic zone of Crimea, created in 2014.

As a result, the Ukrainians living on the peninsula will be subject to the same tax rules as in Ukraine.

Crimea became a Russian region after a referendum held there in March 2014, in which most residents voted in favor of reunification with Russia.
