President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko turned a blind eye to the actions of volunteer battalions in the Donbass, and maybe even suggested to them that we must "start postrelivat"; but now in the West, see what it takes to Kyiv authorities, said Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
As explained Lavrov in an interview with NTV, once Poroshenko realized that now he would have to spend stipulated Minsk-2 political reforms - the amnesty law, the law on the special status of Donbass, securing that status in the Constitution and the holding of elections, coordinating all this with DNR and LNR - he "realized that his days are deemed political."
Lavrov suggested that at this moment Poroshenko thought it "would be nice to close our eyes to what is going to do volunteer battalions, and maybe even tell them that you need to start to fire intermittently."
Lavrov described as "the only plus in this situation" - that Western Ukrainians partners finally "begin to understand what is the Ukrainian government." The Russian minister noted that it "gets very heavy with blood and many months, if not perennial, experiments."
Earlier, Poroshenko has repeatedly stated that in the battles near Avdeevka involved not "volunteer battalions," and a regular part of the APU. Some of the military, he even handed the state awards for their participation in these collisions.
Although Poroshenko says that the Ukrainian military to "protect" themselves APU fighters, as well as some Ukrainian military officials acknowledged that the initiator of a new outbreak of the conflict it became supporters of the Kiev authorities.
