Kyiv: Prime Minister of Ukraine Vladimir Groysman considers an attack on Ukrainian statehood the break of the Ukrainian border on the "Shenini", committed on the eve of Mikheil Saakashvili and his supporters, stressing that those involved in the organization of this incident should be held accountable under the law.
"What happened on Sunday in Shegini is not just a violation of the law. In my opinion, this is the beginning of another attack by some of our politicians against Ukrainian statehood. I'm talking about those populist politicians who act on the principle that the worse, the better, "Groysman said.
According to the Prime Minister, now the time has come when, based on the first results of the normalization of the situation, it is possible to make changes in the country irrevocable. Therefore, we should expect attempts to destabilize those who are not interested in the success of Ukraine. He also urged politicians "not to untwist the flywheel of destruction and chaos."
"Today is the time to fight not for power, but for the state," Groisman stressed.
