The statement of the former “Prime Minister DNR” Alexander Beard that occupied by militants in the Donbas territory will soon be part of Russia, is no coincidence. Thus, the Kremlin is trying to sound out the reaction of Ukraine and the world community to such a perspective, according to Russian sociologist and political scientist Igor eidman.

“The Beard’s statement that “in a relatively short time of the Republic of Donbass will no longer a de facto part of the Russian Federation (de facto they are already part of the Russian Federation), and will be such and de jure,” not just another stuffing. Boroday – man system, without specifying the Putin administration won’t lift a finger. The Russian government did after the “plebiscite” a good mine at bad game, but very unhappy with his actual results indicating rapid decline in their popularity. Putin’s amendments are not supported by the majority of voters. Had to throw an unprecedented number of fake votes to reach the necessary result. The Kremlin, apparently, is seriously considering the possibility of a new annexation to raise the next wave urapatriotichesky hysteria,” wrote eydman on his page in Facebook.

In his opinion, therefore, the Kremlin is trying to raise his fallen rating.

“The statement Beard – probing a possible Ukrainian and world reaction to this prospect. The Russian authorities are intimidated at the same time [President Vladimir] Zelensky, to make him de facto to recognize the puppet leadership of the Pro-Russian enclaves (otherwise “just annexing Donbass”), and test the strength of the position of its Western partners. If the West does not take any serious countermeasures, the Kremlin will decide that the good is received. Then from extortion can move on to a new round of aggression, quickly digest has actually swallowed the Donbass. A rating is not expected”, – says the analyst.
