NOVO-OGAREVO, March 04. /ITAR-TASS/. Reaction of Ukraine’s eastern and southern regions to events in Kiev is predictable.
“I won’t tell you what I have in mind specifically but in principle a reaction of this kind was predictable,” he said. “Both our partners in the West and the people in Kiev calling themselves ‘government’ today did forecast that would happen, didn’t they?”
“I told them a thousand times, why are you splitting the country? What are you doing this for?” Putin said. “But there’s no answer and they’re taking forward and people in the east of the country realize they’ve been squeezed out of the process of decision-making."
