Donbas Battalion delivers ultimatum to Poroshenko

Donbas Battalion delivers ultimatum to Poroshenko
Translated by: Christine Chraibi

The Donbas Battalion declares: “Should a single city be surrendered, the president will fly off his chair, there will be a military coup and the soldiers will take power into their own hands.”

In an interview with channel TVi, the commander of the Donbas Battalion, Taras Konstanchuk, stated that if the President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, surrenders a single kilometer of Ukrainian land in negotiations with the “DNR” and “LNR”, he can expect a military coup and the central government will be seized by soldiers.

He added that every time the soldiers feel that the deputies of the Verkhovna Rada are adopting incorrect or useless laws, they will come and set fire to tyres before the parliament building.

“Until we start controlling what they actually do, nothing will make sense. We should come into the building and say: “What kind of laws are you adopting, you lazy bums? There’s only one way you’ll leave here, and that’s feet first.”- said Konstanchuk.

On Tuesday, October 4, the President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, repealed the law on the special status of Donbas.
