KIEV, June 9. /TASS/. The incumbent Ukrainian authorities are steering the country toward political and economic default, Prime Minister of Ukraine’s shadow government Boris Kolesnikov told a meeting of the opposition cabinet on Tuesday.
"The authorities do not understand what they are doing. As early as last September, it was recognized that there was no military solution to the conflict. Now it’s June, the first anniversary of the Minsk agreements is just two months away. Thousands of people have died, the industrial heartland of our country — the Donbas region — has been destroyed. And what are the authorities talking about? Here are two laws specifying how to impose martial law and how to provide legal framework for default. Judging by their actions, what the authorities are really after is not a reform of the constitution or the adoption of a new one. They are to fast-track the introduction of martial law with the net effect of an economic and political default and chaos. The authorities must tell the Ukrainian people whether they are ready to secure peace and ensure decentralization," Kolesnikov said.
The politician noted that no country would provide Ukraine with the lethal weapons, and if this happened, the whole of Ukraine would become a testing ground for new types of weapons. "Ukraine will turn into Vietnam of the late 1960s and early 1970s. It will become a testing ground for weapons of the two systems, the most powerful at the time. If the authorities want such scenario for Ukraine, it’s simpler to change them," Kolesnikov added.
