Russia is a country the government of which is not quoted abroad. About this on air of the program «access Code» on radio «Echo of Moscow» said the Russian writer and journalist Yulia Latynina.
«The only thing that can Russia, she can really throw sticks in the wheels of the neighbouring States, it can do nasty things to them. But she does this shit only in the weak countries. It is true that in poor countries, these nasty things are able to do,» she said.
Latynina cited the example of Georgia, which Russia «did stuff», having only the fact that Mikhail Saakashvili has ceased to be the Georgian President.
«The same goes for Ukraine. Yes, in the sense of virtuoso muck muck – Donbass. Super, right? Staged in neighboring countries, Hamas, slyly smile and say, there are tractor drivers and combine operators. Very good. And what dividends are, in fact, Russia gained from the fact that it happened in the Donbass here is the Palestine? Negative dividends are that Russia lost the Ukrainian market and Ukraine as a culture,» she said.
According to Russian publicist, the loss of the Ukrainian market for the Russian companies became greater loss than the acquisition of the Crimea.
«Ukraine, we arranged stuff, like Georgia, because they were weak countries. But experience shows that when it comes to strong democracies, when we are talking about America, when we are talking about France, we are truly even and shit, then you can not» – said Latynina.
The Russian-Georgian war lasted from 8 till 12 Aug 2008. On 26 August 2008 Russia recognized South Ossetia and Abkhazia as independent States, Georgia and most of the world consider them as occupied territories.
Russia occupied the Crimea and Sevastopol after the illegal referendum on 16 March 2014. The annexation of Crimea by Russia is not recognised by Ukraine and most countries of the world. In the moment between mainland Ukraine and the Crimea there is an access control regime, and Kiev de facto controls the Peninsula.
In April 2014, in the East of Ukraine began the armed conflict between the Armed forces of Ukraine and Pro-Russian rebels who control part of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.
