State Duma deputy Ruslan Balbek, lower house of parliament from the Crimea, called the words of a Ukrainian official “hopeless dreams”, that the goal of Ukraine is the desire to “split Russia apart.”
Earlier it was reported that the deputy head of the Ministry of Ukraine for the occupied territories, George Tuka, said that relations between Kiev and Moscow should be pragmatic, and the goal of Ukraine should be the desire to “split Russian territory apart.”
“Everything that Poroshenko’s regime promised the Ukrainian people with respect to Russia did not come true, but, but they have to keep saying something, anything-” believes the deputy.
Balbek noted that Tuka was fed this phrase to voice from those above him.
