Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada Sergey Vysotsky, on the air of TV channel “1+1”, said that now Ukraine and the West must unite to fight against a common enemy. “It is necessary, according to him, to divide Russia,” said Vysotsky. He’s sure that it is possible Crimea and Donbass will return to Ukraine. For this we need to destroy Russian statehood in the form in which it exists.
“That’s why our message to the international agenda, and our task, which now, unfortunately, is not solved, is the needed consolidation around the world for the dismantling of the current Russian state, not especially Putin regime,” he noted.
Only by staging the collapse of the Russian economy, and Russia’s statehood will Kiev be able to realize its cherished dream – “absolutely, without pain, the return of Crimea and the occupied territories. And for this we need to achieve the strategic goal,” – said Vysotsky. In an interview with the program “Right to Rule”, the MP sought to assure viewers that Russia is the enemy. “Without a victory over the enemy and its destruction, we will not be able to take back our property. No conferences will help,” he concluded.
