The former President of Ukraine Victor Yushchenko believes that Kiev for the victory in the conflict with Russia should follow the comprehensive plan, consisting of a number of components. With the corresponding statement he made in an interview with “Ukrainian truth”.
“If [Russian President Vladimir] Putin is seen in front of the 45 million who speak one language, one voice and dream of the same goal, we would have no one touched. No. Russian politics for the past 350 years — it is the policy of crushing. To pick up the language, memory, culture, the Church, to emasculate national spirit,” said Yushchenko.
“If you have the spirit, you will always win. If you have no spirit, you no [air defense missile system] Buk, nothing will help. (…) Look at the example of the Vietnamese army. She defeated the first army of the world (USA — approx. “Of the tape.ru”). The Vietnamese people ten times was stronger than the spirit. And the spirit wins,” — said the former President.
Yushchenko pointed out that a quick “single” solution to the problems with Donbas and Crimea have not, and it needs to take diplomatic and other steps. The ex-President is sure that “the victory is components calculated at the time, and these components a lot.” “It’s like toothpaste from a tube, which we have to squeeze, if you want to brush your teeth. This is no simple military response,” said Yushchenko.
He also blamed the delay on the country’s Parliament. “We are four year fight, we have no document of this body. No document that introduces a new political definition. If we don’t deal in definitions, we don’t write the plan”, — said the former head of Ukraine.
Yushchenko criticized the current government for the preservation of a visa-free regime and active trade with the “enemy.” “I ask, do you fight? You are really going to liberate the territory? You are funny. You unbalanced, inadequate. In this state there is no plan for victory, because you behave not as people who needed a win. You are already slaves,” said the ex-President.
The armed conflict in the Donbas began in the spring of 2014 after Kiev attempted to suppress statements in the Donetsk and Lugansk regions caused by the change of power in Ukraine. Kiev regularly accuses of meddling in the conflict Russia. In the Kremlin deny these allegations, citing a lack of evidence.
