Poroshenko is not interested in resolving the Donbass conflict before the presidential election in 2019 to secure his re-election. The ex-speaker of the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Oleg Voloshin announced this on air of the Ukrainian TV channel 112.

“Peace in the Donbass is a concession, which will have to be done by both sides. Our cheer-patriots, who want to force out the Russians (and also take the Kuban’ region!) will not accept amnesty or a special status. Poroshenko even had to justify himself for the Minsk agreements – something any politician would have to agree to at the time. He was surrounded by 8,500 soldiers who would have otherwise been killed or taken prisoner, ” Voloshin said.

He believes that the Ukrainian politicians benefit from the war in the Donbass.

“And what’s wrong with that?” Smuggling contraband, ratings, you do not need to feed the pensioners in the Donbass. The president is afraid that he will be criticized not for not stopping the war, but for stopping the war at the price of concessions,” Voloshin said.
