MOSCOW, February 16. /TASS/. Russia will not pay reparations to Ukraine, on the contrary, the Ukrainian authorities will pay the price for the current situation in Donbas, Russian Communist Party deputy chairman Dmitry Novikov said at a press conference on Monday.
"It’s not Russia that, in a historical perspective, will have to pay reparations. These people [Ukrainian authorities] will have to pay the price themselves," Novikov said, commenting on Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk’s statement that Moscow has to pay reparations to Kiev.
"Different accusations against Russia are put forward by the same people who staged a coup in Kiev last year," he noted.
On Sunday, Yatsenyuk wrote in his Twitter microblog that in the issue "of restoring Donbas," he thinks "it is logical to raise the question of reparations from Russia."
