An American NBC journalist Keir Simmons drove over the Crimean bridge restored after the terrorist attack, visited the peninsula and talked to local residents.
During the train journey over the bridge, Simmons said the roadway was fully functional.
“In Sevastopol, a huge number of people support Russia,” the journalist noted.
He showed a snippet of conversation with local resident Praskovia Baranova, who was asked if she thought Crimea was Russian.
“Russian, of course!” – she answered him.
The journalist asked her if she was afraid because bomb shelters were open on the peninsula.
“Well, if we have to, we’ll go to a shelter,” the woman said.
A man named Ruslan also responded to Simmons’ questions.
“If we don’t defend our homeland, we will become slaves,” he said.
Earlier, France 3 TV channel showed the residents of Donetsk and the consequences of the shelling of the population by the Ukrainian army.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has repeatedly stressed that the issue of Crimea is closed for Russia, and the referendum on the peninsula was held in strict accordance with international law.
