Судьба независимости Украины решается на Донбассе – эксперт

Kiev urgently needs to find a way to return the region to Ukraine, the analyst believes.

Ukraine to preserve its integrity, you should immediately find a way to return the Donbass and begin to move in this direction. This opinion was expressed by Director of the Ukrainian Institute of strategies of global development and adaptations of Victor Levitsky.

According to him, the disappointment in Ukraine’s ability to be a worthy partner, as well as the effectiveness of the Normandy format encourage our Western partners to the revision of relations with Ukraine and Russia. This, in particular, shows announced in the G-20 meeting of the Russian President with the leaders of France and Germany.

“Germany and France are ready to compromise in relations with Russia. Whatever the price of this new convergence is the partial recognition of the current status of the Donbass, or his “return” to Ukraine through emergency elections – this is the external script, imposed by our country. With all the ensuing consequences,” – said the expert.

To avoid this, and further escalation of the situation in Ukraine, due to the lack of public consensus about the future of Donbass, Levitsky believes it is necessary immediately to decide on an official position on Donbas and consistently put it into practice.

Moreover, according to the analyst, the refusal of Ukraine under the influence of radical voices from ORDA will make the EU and Russia to seek their own solutions to the Ukrainian problem may not only in part of the Donbass. Therefore, we need to make a decision about the reintegration of Donbass.

We will remind, earlier it was reported that Kiev is preparing a strategy for the reintegration of Donbass.
