Oleksandr Turchynov: It is exactly Russia who has the most chances to repeat the Yugoslavian scenario
Russia has the most chances to repeat the Yugoslavian scenario. This is how NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov commented on the statement of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev that if Donbass won't be provided with the autonomy status, Ukraine is risking to disappear the same as Yugoslavia.
"There is such a saying in the Bible: "He who sows the wind shall reap whirlwind." That is what Russian leaders are doing, when predicting the Yugoslavian scenario for Ukraine. They jump out of their pants to create such scenario, not stopping before shelling the peaceful residential districts of Ukrainian cities and shooting down civil aircrafts", - Oleksandr Turchynov said, stressing that Ukraine is able to withstand the aggression of the Russian Federation, to protect itself and eventually to return temporarily occupied territories of Donbass and Crimea.
According to him, Russia itself, "which is a colossus with feet of clay", is more likely to fall apart by the Yugoslav scenario. "And a lot of powerful and serious neighbors of it look at Russia, particularly at its eastern part, as at the canned food, which is to be opened in the nearest future", - he added.
At the same time, NSDC Secretary said that the totalitarian regime in Russia is trying to hold back national liberation movements "by bribing or suppression of them and to switch the maturing large-scale social discontent at artificially invented external enemies". "But the experience of USSR shows that such situation cannot last for long. The collapse of the empire, built on fear and lie, which began in the early 90's of the last century, has just temporarily stopped" - he considers.
"The Soviet intervention in the 80's became the detonator for the beginning of the empire collapse, - Oleksandr Turchynov noted, - and current Russian intervention will become the detonator, which will complete the process of decay."
