MOSCOW, March 15. /TASS/. The president of the Middle East Institute, Yevgeny Satanovsky, believes that the Ukrainian authorities have lost the ability to keep the situation in the country under control. He made a statement to this effect on Wednesday at a TASS news conference devoted to the presentation of his book titled Dialogues, co-authored with Israeli political scientist, former chief of the bureau for relations with Jews in the CIS and Eastern Europe Nativ, Yakov Kedmi.
"As far as Ukraine is concerned, I believe that it has fallen apart already but it has not yet developed the awareness it has broken up," Satanovsky said. "The government is unable to enforce law and order even in the capital. What kind of kind of country is that? It’s an ex-country."
Among the main problems the Ukrainian authorities are unable to cope with Satanovsky mentioned "private armies, governors’ insubordination and the government’s inability to put under control ordinary gangs or gangs professing some ideology."
For his part, Kedmi pointed to the grave crime situation in Ukraine and predicted that it would be turning worse.
"Those who will find themselves in Ukraine’s near future will feel nostalgic about the current situation," he warns. "What will happen next I do not know. Ukraine’s future can be seen in the current events on the border between Ukraine, on the one hand, and the Donetsk and Lugansk republics, on the other. And the events in Kiev’s streets in front of Russian banks and the crime situation in Kiev will soon be a sweet past in contrast to Ukraine’s near future."
