Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused the Ukrainian government of unwillingness to comply with the Minsk agreements and “bloody provocations” in Donbas.
Such theses are contained in Putin’s article ” On the historical unity of Russians and Ukrainians .” The text of the article was published on the Kremlin’s website in Ukrainian.
The material, in addition to various historical assessments, contains the view of the President of the Russian Federation on the war in Donbass.
“Representatives of Ukraine periodically declare their” full commitment “to the Minsk agreements, but in fact are guided by the position of their” inadmissibility. ” Neither the special status of Donbass nor the guarantees for the people who live here are ready to seriously discuss. They prefer to exploit the image of a “victim of external aggression” and trade in Russophobia. Arrange bloody provocations in Donbass. That is, they attract the attention of external patrons and owners in any way, ”Putin’s article reads.
At the same time, he is convinced that Ukraine has allegedly become an important element of the global conspiracy against Russia (the “Anti-Russia project”), and therefore “Kiev simply does not need Donbass.”
“Why? Because, first of all, the inhabitants of these regions will never accept the order that they have tried and are trying to impose on them by force, blockade, threats. And secondly, the results of both Minsk-1 and Minsk-2, which give a real chance to peacefully restore the territorial integrity of Ukraine, directly agreeing with the DPR and LPR through Russia, Germany and France, contradict the logic of the anti-Russia project. And he can only hold on to the constant cultivation of the image of the internal and external enemy, “Putin continues.
Earlier, Putin attacked Ukraine with criticism over Volodymyr Zelensky’s bill on indigenous peoples. Among other things, he called Ukraine “a product of the Soviet period” and compared it to Nazi Germany .
