Recall that Yarosh is one of the most notorious opponents of the Kremlin in Ukraine. Earlier, he called members of the terrorist underground in the North Caucasus to unite their efforts with the Ukrainian nationalists in the war against Russia, and threatened to blow up the pipeline and so on.
Such statements often occur in the Ukrainian media. The ruling elite did not hesitate to use the rhetoric of war to in terms of socio-economic crisis and amid a corruption scandal to raise their credibility.
In particular, shortly before the performance Yarosh Ukrainian blogger Martin Brest said that once the UN peacekeepers cut off the self-proclaimed DND and LNR from the border with Russia, Kiev will introduce its troops. Before the security forces will put the task to kill all who refuse to lay down their arms. This is the conclusion the blogger came after a meeting with President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko, which, according to sociologists, trust about 5% of Ukrainians.
Meanwhile, Ukraine already the fifth year of living without the Crimea and war on Donbass. “MK” has found out from experts whether the Ukrainian authorities to convince their fellow citizens of the necessity of enmity with Russia.

— This is not the first statement of the Ukrainian politicians, provoking further tensions between Ukraine and Russia. We understand that for many politicians this was the only direction to maintain interest to the person. Based on the fact that in fact, Ukraine has already started the presidential campaign, many politicians make provocative statements, trying to draw attention to their persons.
Very doubtful, especially in the South-East of Ukraine the younger generation will take in the future Russia as the aggressor, since, despite the attempts of the Ukrainian authorities to silence the truth about the events in the Donbass, many people know the true state of Affairs and realize that the Ukrainian authorities are simply deceiving them, and in the Donbas are the same guys as they fight for the opportunity to speak in their native language, to honor their heroes and to arrange their lives independently, and not under the control of the IMF and Western partners.
Alexander GUSEV, Director of the Institute of strategic planning and forecasting:
Some part of Ukrainians can succumb to media reports that Russia is their enemy, however it should be noted that Ukrainian society is quite polar in their views. A huge number of people do not support the current government and wants to be friends with Moscow. In the same spirit they raise their children. Believe that after March 2019 Ukraine will choose a President with whom Russia will be easier to find a common language.
At the same time, it is impossible to relax. If the election again to win the opponent of Moscow, the risk of reformatting Ukrainian society in the anti-Russian will grow. It is important for Russia to support a more loyal candidate.
