President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that he was forced to fully legalize the trade and economic blockade of Donetsk and Luhansk to disrupt the operation on the entry of the region into structure of Russia. As it did not explain how the authorities ‘ actions differ from the so-called initiative of volunteers, “MK” decided to find out the logic of Kiev from the experts.
In his speech at the meeting of the regional development Council, Poroshenko said that the volunteers started in January 2016, the blockade was not effective, as the self-proclaimed DND and LNR received all necessary assistance to Moscow via Kiev uncontrolled border. However, it gave the local authorities a reason to declare the seizure of factories and coal mines, which were virtually cut off from the Ukraine, said the head of state. All this he calls a planned special operation, which the organizers must be punished.
Despite this, Poroshenko says that he was forced to legitimize the blockade, as it is necessary to make the DPR and LPR to return to Ukraine, its enterprises, which was the last lever of influence on Donetsk and Lugansk. At first glance, it may seem that the President continues to suffer from disorder the logic, but just in case, “MK” has decided to learn opinion of experts:
Denis DENISOV, a Russian analyst:
– Similar statements came after the international community condemned the decision of Kiev on the blockade of Donbass. To at least to justify, Poroshenko is trying to “turn black into white” and Vice versa. In fact, the Ukrainian government sided with the so-called volunteer battalions. Now, the DNI and the LC is fully pereorientirovanija on Russia and its other partners. The point of no return has already been passed.
Ukrainian politicians live by the principle “the worse, the better”. Very soon, in Kiev will begin to say that the problems in the economy began in Russia’s fault, which leads them to the mythical war. At the same time, Poroshenko has done everything in his power to Ukraine was in a state of preddefoltnom. The ruling elite of Ukraine is a product of the very corruption. Poroshenko and his team is a temporary worker, who allotted them time seek to steal from the country as much money as possible.
– The logic of Poroshenko’s impossible to understand. On the one hand, he criticizes the blockade, with the other supports at the state level. More controversial decisions it is impossible to imagine. Ukrainian enterprises on the territory of the DNI and the LC and were under the control of the breakaway republics, and no, it never stopped. Poroshenko must understand that because of the blockade, no one will transfer management of the plants.. All happening before our eyes is a big mystery.
However, I do not think that the international community will try to force Poroshenko to lift the blockade. The President criticized in the EU and the US, but no one in Kiev does not make this great tragedy, almost not paying attention. Even the postponement of the IMF tranche was not directly related to the blockade of Donbass. It was only a part of the General negative background, which was formed in part due to corruption scandals, the General decline in the economy and political crisis. At the same time, if the IMF ceases to provide assistance to Ukraine, it will be very hard. I can’t comment on, flush if the political elite of Ukraine by its decisions themselves and the country. There is as it is…
