The Deputy Minister of the temporarily occupied territories and internally displaced persons Georgy Tuka said that no law will allow to return the Crimea and Donbass under the control of Ukrainian authorities. With regard to the Russian Peninsula, it will become part of Ukraine only after the destruction of Russia as a state, the Minister said.
Tuck said in an interview to UNN that the adoption of any laws regarding the return of Crimea and Donbass, will be “just politicking”.
In his opinion, for the return of uncontrolled territories need a “step-by-step compilation of action”: increasing the combat capability of the army, economic and financial viability of Ukraine as well as strengthening communities.
In particular, Tuck is confident that the territory of the breakaway Donetsk and Lugansk national republics in the foreseeable future, unable to return to the Ukraine.
The first step in this direction, the Deputy Minister believes, will be shifting the leadership of DNR and LNR Alexander Zakharchenko and Igor Plotnitsky. On change by it have come “latent separability”, not related to the organization of the events of 2014, resulting in Kiev lost control over part of Donbas.
With the return of the Crimea, the situation is much more difficult, stated Deputy Minister. “If the return of control to the Donbass, I see and understand, then the return of Crimea, in addition to the destruction of Russia as a state, in the current regime — another way today, I see,” said Tuck.
In early October, the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted in the first reading introduced by the President Petro Poroshenko’s bill on the reintegration of Donbass, in which Russia recognized as an aggressor country.
The law gives the President the right to use the army in the Donbass in peacetime for the protection of sovereignty. This will help to legitimize its use in the East without a Declaration of war.
