'It is time for ordinary Ukrainians to give up their illusions,' Russian Ambassador Anatoly Antonov told Newsweek.

A decade after Russia annexed the strategically located Crimean Peninsula amid nationwide unrest in Ukraine, Moscow's top envoy in Washington has told Newsweek that defeat was inevitable for the neighboring country as it continued to count on Western support throughout the course of a two-year war between the two nations.

The peninsula remained a part of Russia through civil war, the establishment of the Soviet Union and World War II, and was first transferred to the jurisdiction of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in 1954, though central power was retained in Moscow. This changed in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union and the independence of Ukraine as a sovereign state.
