Ukrainian party “the Voice” musician Svyatoslav Vakarchuk urged Kiev to withdraw from the Minsk agreements and to strengthen military and economic potential of the country, and then to regain the Donbas.
Ukrainian party “the Voice”, whose leader is the soloist of the musical group “Okean Elzy” Svyatoslav Vakarchuk, said that Ukraine should withdraw from the Minsk agreements and to accumulate economic and military capabilities, and then to return Donbass under his own power, and – in the conditions of Kiev.
As indicated in the statement of the party in Facebook, to recapture the Donbass by force at the moment Ukraine can not, because APU is not ready for this physically. However, the output of the Minsk agreement will allow Kiev to not be compelled to withdraw the army from the separation line in the Donbass.
“Time to recognize reality and withdraw from the Minsk agreements. It does not depart a single step back: neither the military or diplomatic fronts. We must strengthen the military capabilities of Ukraine and to be ready to outweigh in their favor violent confrontation. To create a stationary military bases, to restore order in rotation, the infrastructure and the support of the army”, — stated in the post.
The policy also stated that the Minsk agreement even if compliance would be disadvantageous to Kiev, because then in the Donbass elections will be held, but control over the Russian-Ukrainian border in these areas, the Ukrainian authorities will not. For the same reason, in the “Voice” expressed skepticism about the meeting, “Norman Quartet”, indicating that the West simply will force Georgia to peace on unacceptable terms.
In addition, the party explained that in the case of implementing the Minsk agreements, international sanctions against Russia may be loosened, and the policy of “Voice” called to prevent this.
