Launched by militants in the Donbas campaign has completely failed, and Pro-Russian configured population of Ukraine was disappointed in Russian President Vladimir Putin. On 30 July, said in a broadcast of the Internet channel “ROI TV” former “defense Minister DNR” Igor Girkin (arrows).
“We have a negative publicity in the form of Donetsk and Lugansk national republics. Destroyed, ruined. We have a saying, a curse: “Putin, help!” Here Donetsk and Lugansk – it’s just living evidence of this saying”, – he said.
According to the leader of the militants who started the 2014 campaign in the Donbass “betrayed, sold out and failed”.
“I believe that this is a consequence not only of insufficient intelligence, but also a direct sabotage on the part of the President’s entourage. That’s the question that worries me. Donbass is now frozen, to turn him, right to hand over to Ukraine Moscow wants but can not. Because the trailer is Crimea”, – said Girkin.
Russia occupied the Crimea and Sevastopol after the illegal referendum on 16 March 2014. The annexation of Crimea by Russia is not recognised by Ukraine and most countries of the world.
