KIEV, May 06. /ITAR-TASS/. Events in Ukraine’s troubled southeast were generated by the nation's domestic problems, the head of the Ukrainian Policy Institute said on Tuesday, blaming the present Ukrainian leadership for “unwillingness to take the problems of the country the way they are in reality”.
“Violent confrontation was certainly caused by our domestic problems,” Konstantin Bondarenko said in a commentary for the Ukrainian Vzglyad (View) newspaper on Tuesday.
“I don’t see preconditions for a dialogue with the opposite side in the southeast confrontation, but we can see it-will-be-a-walkover mood of squeezing on to silence. However, the authorities seem to scarcely think about the price they will have to pay,” the expert said.
“The authorities are eager to indulge in wishful thinking and are readily handling unverified information,” Bondarenko added.
