MOSCOW, June 08, /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Ambassador in Kiev Mikhail Zurabov believes that fact that Ukraine’s newly elected President Pyotr Poroshenko switched over to Russian to address the people in southeast Ukraine during his inauguration on June 7is a positive sign.
“The fact that Pyotr Poroshenko switched over into Russian when addressing the residents of Donetsk, Lugansk and southeastern Ukraine…is a positive sign,” Zurabov said in an interview with the Russia-24 television news channel on Saturday.
In his address Poroshenko spoke about decentralization of power, expansion of regional powers, about the Russian language which the people in southeast Ukraine could use and speak freely; confessional independence which means denunciation of Kiev’s policy to impose clerical solutions on Ukraine’s eastern regions. He also raised many other issues addressed to the residents of southeast Ukraine and he did that in Russian.
“Naturally, he spoke only about his intentions. Very soon, we will see whether he is going to succeed in implementing these intentions. The entire socio-political situation in Ukraine will give an answer to this question,” Zurabov said.
