Oleksandr Turchynov: The only way of implementing the Minsk agreements is to cease military aggression and liberate the Ukrainian territory from the occupation forces and Russian weapons
"Moscow is trying hardly to hide the occupation of the Ukrainian Donbass region by organized fake elections. It's like trying to hide the elephant behind the rake that has just hit him in the trunk.
Given that fake elections in the occupied territory were carried out by the military-political leadership of the Russian Federation with the already known result, with the same success they could choose the leaders of the fake republics of two mongrels from the Moscow region. Moreover, this would not be the worst format for the occupied territories, since they could bark loudly, but at least they would not plunder the Ukrainians who are under Russian occupation.
Putin's statement about the need for Ukraine to negotiate with the Kremlin puppets, who were appointed to "govern" the quasi-republics, is his obsessive and obscurantist idea, which he has been trying to push forward ineffectively since 2014 and which our state and the entire civilized world will never accept.
There is only one way to implement the Minsk agreements, which Putin constantly mentions - to cease military aggression and liberate the Ukrainian territory from the occupation forces and Russian weapons", - Mr. Turchynov said in a comment.
