BERLIN, July 28. /ITAR-TASS/. If the situation in Ukraine caused by the ruling coalition breakup does not go back to normal soon, the country can face collapse, German Christian Democratic Union (CDU) foreign policy specialist Philipp Missfelder told Deutsche Welle on Monday.

“There are many tycoons who are playing their own game and trying to get their assets to safety. If this unstable situation continues in conjunction with oligarchy, the country could threaten to collapse,” he said.

Missfelder urged the confronting sides in Ukraine to cease fire as soon as possible and stop mutual accusations.

“We should also refrain from trying to define over and over again who started the conflict,” Missfelder added. The EU sanctions against Russia “cannot replace a political solution”.

“There must be a ceasefire. The Russians must work for one, and more than previously. Once there is a ceasefire, we can use the political latitude to approach each other and to try to develop a sustainable model for the entire Ukraine,” the expert said.
