"Kyiv's PR actions are accompanied by imitation of hostilities. Kyiv's new political team is experiencing a catastrophic drop in Zelensky's rating. This is their standard recipe," he said.
Kozak also believes that the partners in the Normandy format are delaying the negotiation process.
In addition, according to him, Kyiv does not want to return Donbas to Ukraine.
Earlier, it was reported that Zelensky was on a working trip to Donbas.
An escalation of the situation has been observed in Donbas recently. Since the beginning of this day alone, the militants have violated the ceasefire five times. A sailor of the military unit A2802 Denys Yushko, born in 1998, died from a gunshot bullet wound.
On April 7, the HQ reported that the occupants violated the ceasefire regime seven times. Near Pisky and Opytne, the militants opened fire from 82 mm and 120 mm mortars; near Hnutove, Shyrokyno, Talakovka, and Vodyane, they used various grenade launchers and small arms.
