The former President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko on the air «112 Ukraine» compared the population of Donbass and the population of Nazi Germany. He called his fellow citizens are victims «propaganda.»

According to Yushchenko, for four and a half years of civil war, the consciousness of the population of Donbass has changed so much that the holding of any election under the auspices of the Kiev authorities have not yet make sense.

As an example, the former Ukrainian leader had led Nazi Germany. «Why, in Germany in October or November 1945 elections not held on American territory, French, British? And why in 1946 did not conduct the elections, Hitler was gone?» — I declared ex-the President. Yushchenko expressed opinion that if in Germany in 1945, held elections, «would be such consequences, which for many years, not a year or two, and could not cope».

Yushchenko also expressed the view that the residents of Donbass population are different from the rest of Ukraine. «How to change the views of people like to say that I’m his friend? Even though he goes to Church Moscow, speaks a foreign language, pray to Pavlik Morozov… but Apparently we are different. But we are not the opposite. Different and family. But let the dialogue, to me, relatively speaking, a year or two had the opportunity for intensive and consistent communication,» he said.

The situation in the Donbass

In April 2014, the Ukrainian authorities launched a military operation against the breakaway LC and DNR. Kiev has repeatedly accused Russia of meddling in Ukraine’s Affairs. Moscow denies it and called such accusations are unacceptable.

So, in February of this year the President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko has signed the law on the reintegration of Donbass, in which Russia is called an aggressor, and uncontrolled Kiev territory is «occupied». Two months later Poroshenko announced the end of «anti-terrorist» operation in Donbass, which will replace the action of the United forces.
