You're reading: Arseniy Yatsenyuk: Terrorism’s goal ‘to destroy Ukrainian independence’

We are continuing our national dialogue, but those who keep guns in their hands are not seeking the unity of the country, and they are not talking about granting additional powers to one or another region or about protection of national minorities. Their task, which is sponsored by Russian Federation, is to destroy Ukrainian independence.

The Russian government over the past few weeks is silent about the fact that their intelligence and subversive forces together with armed local terrorists are shooting and killing Ukrainian soldiers and civilians. Where is the position of Russian power who would condemn terrorism?

Over the past two days in Russia there have started two anti-terrorist operations. The first was launched in Nalchik, the other in Makhachkala. It means that Russia is fighting with terrorists. But when Ukraine began to protect its citizens, then it is not the fight against terrorism, in the opinion of Russia, it is the suppression of protests.
