Earlier Ihor Kolomoysky, the Ukrainian businessman and oligarch said there's a civilian conflict going on in Donbas, and Russia has been supporting one of the sides in it.
When asked about the belligerents in this war, Kolomoysky replied that 'Ukrainians fight against Ukrainians'.
The Ukrainian oligarch believes if it was not for Russia's support, the conflict would have been settled a long time ago. The businessman is convinced that Russia provoked and organized these hostilities in Ukraine.
Kolomoysky is known for his close business ties with Ukraine's president-elect Volodymyr Zelensky.
