MOSCOW, December 7. /TASS/. Speaker of Russia’s State Duma lower parliament house, Sergey Naryshkin, said on Monday Kiev might take advantage of the current international situation and stage a new round of aggression in Donbas.
"There is risk that under the cover of the recent developments on the international arena Kiev might stake on a new round of confrontation as the Kiev authorities are apparently irritated that their problems are fading away from the international agenda," he said at a meeting of the Duma’s working group on legal analysis of Ukraine’s legislative procedures and laws.
"They seem to be afraid that their speculations on the Donbas problem could be terminated, they are afraid that the European Union will leave them alone in the face of the imminent default and the loss of the Russian market, which is apparently happening from January 1 due to the reasons and developments you are aware of," he said.
