According to him, people in the occupied territories needs to see what life in the new Ukraine is better than “Russian world”.
“In Ukraine, one people – this is not Serbia, Macedonia or Croatia. Therefore, the government should have a program that would improve the quality of life in Ukraine. So the people in the occupied territories, so-called, or even the real separatists, saw that life in Kiev-controlled territories is better: medical care better wages and benefits, education, security, the army and the police — all the better. The occupier must see that Ukraine is not the same as three years ago. Only in this case will be to help Europe, our Western friends,” – said Kikabidze.
