The Deputy Minister of the occupied territories George Tooke believes that the occupied territory of Donbass Ukraine will return under your control in the following year, or up to June 2018. About this he wrote in a column in the magazine «New time».
«Now Russia is ready to give Donbass only on their own terms. However, I am sure, Ukraine will be able to adopt the initiative and implement your script for the return of the occupied territories. I really hope that this will happen in the next year, high — to mid-2018. However, it is critical to retain the support of Europe and the United States,» he wrote.
At the same time, as noted by Tooke, in recent years there has been an increase of populist forces in Russia who say that you should «separate itself» from the Donbass. In addition Tuka assured that many factors indicate that Russia does not see occupied territory of Luhansk and Donetsk regions in its composition.
«There are lots of facts supporting the Kremlin’s willingness to «surrender» Donbass. The Russian Federation clearly does not see these areas in its composition. One of the simplest proofs is found at an elementary comparison of the work of Russian invaders in the Crimea and the Donbass,» wrote Tuck.
In particular, we are talking about the fact that in the Donbass thrives looting and destruction of businesses.
«They are actually condemning the region to economic extinction. In the Crimea this is not observed,» — said the Deputy Minister.
At the same time, in the occupied Crimea, the Russian authorities rather cause large enterprises to invest in the Peninsula.
«I am an optimist. I hope and want to believe that we finally will find peace; we will refund the Donbass, and the Crimea. At the same time, in my opinion, need to focus on the following aspects: the fight against domestic populism, an effective fight against corruption, a military solution to the conflict. And in that order» — summed up the fat.
Earlier, representatives of the «DND» held a meeting «of heads of authorities and local government DNR» with the participation of the representative of the presidential administration Vladislav Surkov. This was written by the head of group «Information resistance», MP Dmitry Tymchuk.
«During the meeting, Surkov said that «the authorities of the DNI» should be more to meet and communicate with local residents with the aim of provide them with information on the weighty contribution of Russia to the development of «DNR». According to his promise, a year and a half of «DNR» and «LNR» have to be part of the Russian Federation on the rights of full-fledged administrative units», — he wrote.
