According to the columnist, is the problem of corruption.

«We still have a lot of people for whom the homeland is not values, not culture, not language, not native land. Whose homeland is just a purse. A lot of people in every country in the world, it is a fact. But if in Ukraine the majority of these will, Ukraine will simply become a «nemorosa». This and expects Putin» – said Portnikov.

He noted that after independence the new government did not, and «often could not» deal with the consequences of the actions of the regime of ex-President Viktor Yanukovych.

«Often and did not want. Didn’t want to, because it’s more convenient. Because there are with whom to negotiate, there is someone to vote, have someone to make situational alliances against competitors in the government itself. And as a result, in Ukraine there is a strange symbiosis of past and present. It is unclear whether this symbiosis is a place for the future,» says Portnikov.
