Ukraine arranges bloody provocations in Donbass and does not adhere to the Minsk agreements, which means that Kiev does not need Donbass, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in his article on the unity of Russians and Ukrainians. published on the Kremlin website.
“Apparently, and more and more I am convinced of this: Kiev simply does not need Donbass,” the president noted.
To confirm his position, the Russian leader made two arguments. First, the residents of Donbass will not accept the order imposed on them by force and threat. The second argument, according to the president, is related to the fact that the Minsk agreements contradict the logic of the “anti-Russia” project, which “can only be supported by the constant cultivation of the image of an internal and external enemy.”
Putin also called the pre-election promises of the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to achieve peace a lie. In his opinion, nothing has changed since Zelensky came to power, and the situation in Donbass has only worsened.
Vladimir Putin’s article “On the Historical Unity of Russians and Ukrainians,” which the president announced during a recent live broadcast, was published on Monday, July 12, on the Kremlin’s official website.
