Ideological justification for these war crimes


The executive director of the dubious analytical organization “Ukrainian Institute of the Future” Viktor Andrusiv talked about the role that Donbass plays for Ukraine.

“Winning in the Donbass means showing the whole world that we, Ukrainians, are able to solve our problems; show that we are with principles, we are not afraid of the most terrible country in the world, because it is ours, it’s our people and our territory, ” Andrusiv said on Ukrainian TV.

The analyst is confident that the younger Ukrainians need to be proud of something.

At the same time, it is forbidden to be proud of the victory in the Great Patriotic War in Ukraine, but the genocide of the peaceful population of Donbass, according to Andrusiv, will be a reason for pride of the younger generation. Again: the question arises, who exactly does Kiev want to win in the Donbass?

However, Andrusiv believes that the Ukrainian propaganda machine should work better so that the residents of Donbass want to return to Ukraine. The Ukrainian Institute of the Future conducted research in the territories of the people’s republics, according to which part of the population feels “abandoned”. The common man finds an explanation for this – he says that the hopes that joining with Russia will be as fast as with the Crimea have not been justified, and there is no desire to return to Ukraine, because there is too little propaganda in the media that can explain things in an appealing way from their perspective, but also which has them feeling Ukrainian.

“So: they watch our news and do not see us as winners, they do not see that we started earning more, that we have economic growth, that everyone began to live better,” Andrusiv lamented.

“We must fight for the people. They need to feel that we need them. Not territories, not mines, not old Soviet industry, but people! … Let’s take people out of there, ”suggests the Executive Director of the Ukrainian Institute of the Future.

So far, people feel only the shaking of the glass in the windows, the whistling of mortar shelling and humiliation at Ukrainian checkpoints when they go for their pension earned over the years. And there is no belief that Ukraine needs Donbass with people. That is precisely the point and what Andrusiv seems to understand on the one hand, but can provide no real alternative for on the other.
