The official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova said that can not understand what kind of offensive on Ukraine said its President Petro Poroshenko, prediksi attack from the Crimea and Donbas. The head of the Ukrainian branch of the Institute of CIS countries Denis DENISOV told “MK” that will be the case if the words of the Ukrainian leader will still come true.
In addition to the Donbas and Crimea, Russia can attack Kyiv from Chernihiv region and Belarus, then the war will end very quickly all over the Ukraine. But these plans have no, just Poroshenko is a hostage of its own bellicose rhetoric and the situation that has developed around him. If he stops to say such things in official propaganda lost the image of the enemy and the authorities will be difficult to explain why Ukraine is in such crisis. Therefore, such statements Poroshenko calculated solely on the media, which have to fool Ukrainians.
– Immediately after the Maidan the international media began to discuss what will happen if Russia will attack the Ukraine, how long Kiev will be able to resist… Then, many experts, including Western, wrote that the Ukrainians lined the roads, with bread and salt to meet a Russian tank. Do you think the situation now would be different?
– Socio-economic and political situation in Ukraine is now developing in such a way that such a scenario is most likely. The population is well aware that all the problems of modern Ukraine are related to corruption, bureaucracy, the fact that the government actually stolen, and the political elite continues to be comfortable enough to live, and the rest of the country lives worse and worse… it would Not be surprising if the Russian tanks will come across the enthusiastic crowds of Ukrainians, because they are designed to displace the leadership that is deeply anti-Ukrainian.
– That is despite anti-Russian rhetoric, ordinary Ukrainians do not believe the authorities and do not believe?
Here we can rely on the data of sociological research. Poroshenko doesn’t trust about 2/3 of Ukrainians.
– It turns out that there is a ruling elite, Pro-government media and a layer of the same experts that exist in your dimension, and have the rest of the people, which is in a parallel world. As the system has existed for several years?
In other words, in the case of real large-scale war, not what is now locally occurs on Donbass, Ukraine won’t be able to resist Russia?
– Of course. People will not understand what they are fighting. For the oligarchs and fat cats who Rob them every day, they die just will not agree.
