Vladislav Berdichevsky: Ukraine shows whole world its incapacity as a state
DPR People’s Council deputy Vladislav Berdichevsky in the programme “On the same page” on the Kometa radio station commented on the reasons that, in the opinion of the parliamentarian, led to an armed confrontation in the Donbass.
“Ukrainians did not like Donbass residents all the years since Ukraine has become independent. Among the hating Donbass there were most of the Ukrainians who went to earn money in Poland and Russia. They did not like us for the fact that our people do not go anywhere to work and work at home. For the fact that we have industry and there is production.
Today, this hidden hatred has turned over into the confrontation that we have been seeing for four years. Moreover, there are many people in Ukraine who look adequately but at the same time they express such racist and misanthropic thoughts that you and I can only be surprised that we have lived next to them in one country for so many years and have not noticed this hatred.
Ukraine showed the whole world its incapacity as a state. It was unable to rally the peoples who lived for centuries on its territory, and lived peacefully, while this territory was part of the Russian Empire. And the Donbass, where more than 100 nationalities live together, has demonstrated that it does not want to be a part of the country that puts one language and nationality at the head of everything, making it the core of its policy,” the deputy said.
