Kurginyan: Ukraine will never go back to the good old days

18.11.2019, Moscow.

Ukraine has passed “the point of no return” once and for all, political scientist and leader of the Essence of Time movement Sergey Kurginyan said on November 17 on the air of the Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov TV program on the Russia One channel.

“The Maidan of Independence” and the bombing of the Donbass civilians using heavy air power force put Ukraine past “the point of no return.” After what happened in 2013-2014, Ukraine can never return to how it was under Leonid Kuchma [the second president of Ukraine ― Rossa Primavera News Agency], the political scientist said.

All possibilities to keep the country within its current borders are reduced to two options: either try to continue the violence in Donbass or “radically change Ukraine.”

Kiev will not be allowed to use “Bandera techniques” of violence and genocide of civilians in full, these will be “inefficient violent convulsions.” In this case, it is more efficient for Ukraine to let Donbass go and to withdraw from the Minsk agreements, the expert explained.

If the Ukrainian elite wants to keep Ukraine in common borders with Donbass, then the elite will have to acknowledge that “the is no united Ukraine.” “There are several Ukraines, which have to <…> coordinate, on a confederative basis or other,” common agreements, Kurginyan continued.

 “Sooner or later, [Kiev] will have to admit that the only way to integrate Donbass into Ukraine somehow is to radically change Ukraine. Radically. In fact, this means that Donbass has to be allowed to have its own army, its own authorities, its own police or militia, its own border guards etc.,” the political scientist stressed.

The next “Normandy Format” meeting is to take place in December 2019 with the participation of Russia, Ukraine, Germany, and France. The participants will discuss ways to end the civil war in the Eastern Ukraine.

Before the meeting, Moscow returned three warships to Kiev that had illegally crossed Russia’s marine border in the Strait of Kerch in 2018. Also, on November 17 Kremlin expressed doubt that the Donetsk and the Lugansk People’s Republics will accept Kiev’s roadmap.
