The return of the territories of Ukraine should look like a geopolitical victory of Putin.
In the next few years Russia will not return the annexed Peninsula, but will try to “push” the occupied territory of Donbass back to Ukraine.
This opinion was expressed by Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin in his article on “Explorer”.
Only the return of the territories of Ukraine should look like a geopolitical victory of Putin.
According to Oreshkin, the Kremlin also is not going to aneksirovat Donbass and attach it to the territories of the Russian Federation. But Putin is interested in the fact that for everything that happens in a combat zone in the East, paid Ukraine.
“People in Donetsk, Gorlovka and Lugansk are on the verge of poverty. The Russian government understands that if the territory annexed, it will become even more expensive (for the content – 24). There need to invest money, and water, electricity will still be dependence on Ukraine. Plus the West will react to another round of sanctions. Therefore, the Kremlin is not going to “join” this territory,” – said the analyst.
According to Dmitry Oreshkin, the Kremlin is working to abandon the Donbas, but so that it was possible “to keep the triumphant expression on her face.”
“Now, I think, people in the Donbas begin to realize that something is wrong, no Russia will not. The region is complex, it will be harder to integrate into a modern economy. So the military phase will change the phase of the peaceful ploughing of Donbass. The Kremlin is interested to for the broken dishes was paying Ukraine. To include Donbass in composition of Russia Putin unprofitable. This banal truth begins now quite painful pounding in the skull of those who believe in the “new Russia”, – he stressed.
