KIEV, January 28. /TASS/. Recognition of Russia as an aggressor nation by Ukraine’s national parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, proves that the Ukrainian government is unwilling to seek ways of settling the conflict in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions peacefully, the Ukrainsky Vybor (Ukrainian Choice) public association said in a report on Wednesday.
"Today more attempts to apportion blame for the conflict to Russia are made by the Ukrainian authorities," the report said.
"They did not move a finger to establish dialogue between Kiev and Donbas from the very outbreak of the armed conflict in eastern Ukraine; they raised the problems antagonizing society (like the abolition of the non-aligned status and membership of NATO) right at the peak of the standoff; they organized the economic, financial and transport blockade of Donbas in spite of criticism on the part of the international community," it said.
Ukrainian Choice says Kiev’s goal is to drive a wedge in relations between Russia and the EU deeper.
"Kiev persistently implements Washington’s plans voiced by the market gambler George Soros and the US geo-strategist Zbigniew Brzezinski to tell the Europeans about the Russian threat, to scare them with concoctions about the Russian military aggression, and to trigger a new spate of economic and political confrontation," the report said.
"Now Kiev is making demand to assign the status of terrorist organizations to the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics," Ukrainian Choice said. "This testifies to the inhumane attitude of the government towards the millions of civilian people in Donbas, which has found itself on the brink of a humanitarian disaster due to the 'caring treatment' by Ukrainian bureaucrats and politicians."
The organization voices the hope that the international community will not only disavow its support to the position of the "party of war" in the Ukrainian government but will also condemn "party’s" stance.
