The unsuccessful attempts to end hostilities in Donbass are the fault of the current Ukrainian government, Martin continued.
“As I have repeatedly pointed out when Russia was surrounded by other nations, it did not result in anything good for them. We are entering a very serious political situation and I think we need a sober mind to engage in dialogue. The separatists are not shelling themselves, as they have no reason to do so,” Martin said.
Speaking about the restoration of peace in Ukraine, Martin noted that the Ukrainian people need to understand the conditions in which they are right now, “people are used as pawns in a geopolitical chess game that cannot end well, as the West will not sacrifice its national heritage and resources.”
According to Martin, the world needs to “stop the economic terrorism” which the West uses in order to achieve its geopolitical and military goals.
