Pushkov: whatever you call the operation in Donbas, this war against the people

The head of Committee of the Federation Council of Russia on information policy Alexei Pushkov on Tuesday, September 5, responded to the plans of the Ukrainian authorities to rename the military operation in Donbas, ATO (“antiterroristicheskoy) in operation to defend Ukraine.

According to the Senator, such statements by the Ukrainian authorities appear not only as “belated recognition that the terrorists in the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk national republics no.” However, the rejection of the term, the ATO will not change the tension of the situation of the Ukrainian security forces in the zone of armed conflict in the Donbass.

“But whatever you call the operation in Kiev, is a war against its own people”, – wrote Pushkov in his microblog on Twitter.
