Putin’s allies say Ukraine is heading for collapse in several states

The powerful secretary of Russia’s Security Council said on Tuesday that the policies of the Western and Ukrainian governments led to Ukraine’s dissolution.

The comments of Nikolai Patrushev corresponded to a warning that Russia’s war in Ukraine could lead to a cut of the country, which Moscow would seek to blame on its opponents. In an interview with the government newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, Patrushev – a key ally of President Vladimir Putin – said that the United States had been trying for years to instill hatred of all Russians in Ukrainians.

“But history teaches that hatred can never be a reliable factor in national unity,” Patrushev said. “If anything unites the people living in Ukraine today, it is only fear of the atrocities of nationalist battalions,” Patrushev said, referring to units of Ukraine’s armed forces that Moscow has branded Nazis as part of its stated justification. to invade the country. .

Therefore, the result of the Western and Kiev policies could only be the dissolution of Ukraine into several states, he was quoted as saying. His comments, almost nine weeks into the war, gave the latest indication that Moscow – despite initially saying it did not intend to occupy Ukraine – is set to break up the country.

After being repulsed in an initial attempt to storm Kiev, Russian forces have regrouped into what Moscow says is a campaign to “liberate” the eastern Donbas region. Last week, a Russian general went ahead and said Russia would look to take over the entire eastern and southern part of the country.
