The remaining economic ties between Kiev and Donbass are being broken, Essence of Time movement leader Sergey Kurginyan stated during the show “Evening with Vladimir Solovyov” on Russian Channel One on March 1st.
The political scientist stressed that the economic ties between Donbass and the [political] center of Ukraine were the one last element sustaining the integrity of Ukraine. Now, the Ukrainian side “unilaterally cut these ties”.
“Madmen did it [started the blockade of coal shipment – Rossa Primavera News Agency]. The madmen, who, on the one hand, are talking about their wish to have Donbass with them. On the other hand, they are pushing Donbass away as firmly as they can, they are cutting off everything and pushing it [Donbass] in the opposite direction. A madman is more dangerous than a villain. The worst situation is when one is both madman and villain,” Sergey Kurginyan summarized.
Since December 2016, the so-called “voluntary nationalist battalions” are blocking the railway transportation of Donbass. Coal shipments to the Ukrainian plants are blocked.
