Ukraine’s adoption of regulatory legal acts aimed at blocking access to popular Russian Internet resources can have catastrophic consequences for Ukraine itself, said the Chairman of the People’s Council, the permanent plenipotentiary DPR representative to the talks in Minsk Denis Pushilin on the air of the program “Informally” on the “Oplot” TV channel.
The Speaker of the Parliament noted the disturbing tendencies connected with the decision adoption by the Kiev government, which is aimed at limiting free access to information.
“All these decisions that are being made are absurd and somewhere even catastrophic, but they have their implication. If now the closure of social networks causes simply a storm of protest, then in 5-7 years there will appear the consequences of these restrictions, the separation of Ukraine from the Russian world. Therefore, we need to hurry and change the situation,” Denis Pushilin stressed.
The DPR envoy also shared his vision of the international situation and expressed doubts that the West will influence Ukraine with the aim of settling the conflict in the Donbass.
“Recently, Merkel met with Vladimir Vladimirovich (Putin – Ed.), then with Poroshenko, and I had some hopes, but alas… Everyone just expressed their position.
About the last meeting in Germany. I had the impression that there was a discussion about how to press Russia more. Now it is too optimistic to say that there are tasks and messages from Merkel to Poroshenko on the implementation of the Minsk agreements,” Denis Pushilin said.
