BERLIN, May 18 /ITAR-TASS/. Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi believes that residents in eastern Ukrainian regions have a grounded striving for independence. The former Italian premier has made a statement to this effect in an interview with German newspaper Welt am Sonntag made public at the paper’s website on Sunday.

“They have an extremely negative opinion about those who work in current government [in Ukraine’s capital, Kiev]. It seems quite understandable to me that people want to proclaim independence in more successful regions [in terms of development of production industries],” the former prime minister of the country said, adding that “Ukrainian economy is in a heavy situation. Citizens believe that it is weaker than the Russian one.”

Meanwhile, Berlusconi believes that “This would be very regretful if Russia turns out to be in isolation again” over current events in Ukraine.
