Baku. 9 October. REPORT.AZ/ "The events took place in the east of Ukraine are the same with wars waged by Russia in Nagorno-Karabakh, Abkhazia, South Ossetia and the Crimea."
Report informs, former Ukrainian President Viktor Yushchenko said it in his interview with Austrian "Profil" magazine.
"Putin is, in fact, carrying out a political project, his goal is to return to superpower status, in this regard, the Crimea less interests him,” V. Yushchenko noted.
In addition, he urged the West to help Ukraine: “I refer to Russian tanks and vehicles for missile defense. I cannot understand why EU sees a military assistant to Ukraine as a big problem. Political negotiations will not yield results,” Yushchenko stressed.
