With the filing of the Russia and Yanukovych’s Ukraine began to divide.
In the presidential election of 2004 was the first systematic application of technologies in the split of Ukraine from the Party of regions. Then started to build theses, which are then fired in the Donbas and the Crimea.
This opinion was expressed by Executive Director of the Center for applied political studies “Penta” Alexander Leonov.
As the political scientist, was then clearly established the border between the two presidential candidates, Yanukovych and Yushchenko. Because the Party of regions considered that, according to preliminary results, the Pro-Russian people more than Pro-Ukrainian.
In 2004, with the filing of Russian Yanukovych spin doctors like Gleb Pavlovsky, appeared the most patterns which were used by Russia for aggression against our state in 2014. Then they launched the thesis “Nazis”, “fascists”, “Bandera” and message: “Donbass feeds the whole Ukraine”. In Donetsk there were flags of so-called “DNR”, – said Alexander Leonov.
However, the expert said, as a result, the 2004 elections proved that Central Ukraine was Pro-Ukrainian. And in the Kherson region was half for Yanukovich, and half for Yushchenko. Then it was clearly stated promotion of Ukrainian national interests on the left Bank of the Dnieper. And the ending we saw in 2014, when the Crimea and part of Donbass was supported by the Russian slogans.
