The Ukrainian authorities are unable to keep control of Crimea and Donbas because of a weak national identity and lack of national unity. This was Viktor Yushchenko said in an interview with “Apostrophe”.
“We did sociology in 2008 when I was still President. Then 70 percent of Ukrainians wanted to see the head of state Putin. More than half of Ukrainians answered in the affirmative to the question whether they want to see their President Vladimir Putin”, — said the politician.
According to the former President, the Ukrainians have to look for the cause of problems themselves. “And if we see her, there is a chance to fix everything and we will become worthy opponents of Putin’s Russia”, – said Victor Yushchenko.
In March of this year Victor Yushchenko said that the disappearance of the Ukrainian language will lead to the loss of Kiev state. “By train to Kiev, look in the Windows. You say that you live in the capital of independent Ukraine? That’s a Tula, here, there is a Ural will see such language. This is a different culture. For the essence of the national language. If you lose language, you lose the state,” he said.Related posts:
