Putin: Ukrainians and Russians are one people

Putin: Ukrainians and Russians are one people
Translated by: Christine Chraibi

“I believe that Russians and Ukrainians form one people.” repeated Russian President Vladimir Putin at a meeting with representatives of public associations in Crimea.

In addition, Putin stated that it was shameful and humiliating for the Ukrainian people to see their country being controlled by external forces, a practice condoned and supported by the current government in Kyiv.

“I am convinced that, despite all the troubles and difficulties, the situation will change in Ukraine. Ukraine will move away from the shameful practices that we see today, namely appointing key governmental and regional positions to foreign nationals.” said the Russian president.

According to Putin, this shameful practice is still positively viewed by most Ukrainians. But, Ukraine will get back on its feet and start developing in a more positive way. The president pointed out that he is confident Ukraine will build its future with Russia.
