On January 27, Natalia Nikonorova, DPR Minister of Foreign Affairs, took part in the talk show “Tolstoy” on Channel One of Russian television.
The topic was a split of the Ukrainian society as a strategy for the election campaign of Petr Poroshenko.
Natalia Nikonorova noted a destructive influence of media statements from the nationalist-minded part of Ukraine, although this segment of Ukrainian population is not a majority, and many Ukrainian people have a completely different, much more peaceful and adequate attitude to the people of Donbass.
She also stated that it is impossible to restore peace in Ukraine without repealing laws adopted by the Ukrainian government that run counter to the provisions of the Complex of measures. The Head of the DPR MFA reminded of the absence of an alternative to the Minsk agreements, which Kiev is obliged to fulfill, despite all attempts to evade its obligations.
