Kyiv: The ex-president of Ukraine, Leonid Kravchuk, said that the Russian Federation will return the Donbas to Ukraine since it was destroyed, and Russia does not need it. He said this during an interview.
“Russia will return the destroyed Donbas because it does not need it. But the issue of de-occupation of Donbas and Crimea cannot be considered together. Until we sit at the table with the Kremlin, nothing will happen. Others will help us, contribute to, but we must solve this problem with Russia. Of course, with the pressure of the West", said Kravchuk.
In addition, the former president recalled that the head of the Kremlin refused to discuss any issues with the current President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko.
We recall that the US policy to reduce the security of its presence abroad is a reason for the European Union to demonstrate an active role in solving security and defense problems, in particular, to resolve the conflict in the east of Ukraine.
