According to him, Ukraine will be more difficult to oust the invaders from the Crimea, the Donbas.
“Ukraine does not need more war. But in the conditions of Russia, which, in fact, are intended to transform Ukraine into a satellite of the Kremlin, Kiev can not go. Then what to do? To weaken Russia. Because of the international situation and economic position of Russia contribute to this. When in Moscow will be busy with internal problems, the expansion will have to forget. At the same time Russia will leave the Donbass, together with the militants and rocket launchers. Yes, it takes time. Russia is not so easy to expel from the Crimea, as from the Donbass,” – said Portnikov.
However, he noted that while Russia has withdrawn from Ukraine, shelling and deaths will continue.
