Even Ukrainian MP’s are coming forward to speak a modicum of truth to power, even if perhaps only as election season rapidly approaches in the impoverished capitalist state. Soon, in Ukraine there will be no economy or social protection, and the state itself will collapse because of the lack of willingness of politicians to take responsibility for re-establishing peace in the country, said a Ukrainian MP.
Such a view was expressed by the Supreme Rada MP (Ukrainian parliament) Natalia Korolevskaya to the NewsOne television channel.
“I believe that currently the future president of Ukraine has to fulfill a single task – to restore peace to the country and after that, he can leave if he wants. This collapse will continue in the future,” he complained.
She added that Ukrainian politicians only advocate peace in the country in words, but take no real action to achieve it.
“All current politicians shout, after having read sociologists, that they advocate peace, but no one presents a real plan on how to achieve it. And no one wants to take responsibility for the return of peace,” she said.
In April 2014, Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the self-proclaimed People’s Republic of Donetsk and the People’s Republic of Lugansk, which declared independence after the coup in February 2014. According to the latest UN data, more than ten thousand people were victims of the conflict.
The issue of resolving the situation in Donbass is being discussed, including during meetings of the contact group in Minsk which, since September 2014, has already adopted three documents regulating measures to mitigate the conflict. However, even after the truce agreements, the shootings continue.
This also comes as recently, the deputy of the Supreme Rada (Ukrainian parliament) Igor Mosiychuk threatened Russia with occupation and territorial division of the country.
The statement was published by the parliamentarian himself on his Facebook account.
The Ukrainian politician presented his own version of history, saying that in 1612 Moscow was liberated not from the Polish invaders but from the Ukrainians. In his words, two-thirds of the troops expelled from the Russian capital were composed of Ukrainian Cossacks.
In this connection, the deputy said that Kiev can take the same measures and, in the near future, occupy more Russian cities.
“History repeats itself. Modern Moscow [old name of Russia] must expect a new occupation from Ukraine,” he said, adding that only this scenario can satisfy the “nation of warriors”.
It is not for the first time that Ukrainian politicians make hostile statements about Russia. Recently, the same Ukrainian deputy Igor Mosiychuk threatened to destroy the Crimean Bridge. Thus, in May he called the construction of “enemy infrastructure” and stressed that he would personally participate in its destruction if it were Minister of Defense.
The Crimea reunited with Russia in 2014 after a referendum in which more than 96% of residents voted for reunification. However, Kiev still considers the peninsula as Ukrainian territory. The Russian authorities have repeatedly stressed that reunification occurred in a legal manner, in accordance with international law.
