There's a civilian conflict going on in Donbas, and Russia has been supporting one of the sides in it. Ihor Kolomoysky, the Ukrainian businessman and oligarch said this in the interview with Bihus.Info, the invetstigative journalism initiative. Interfax-Ukraine news agency quoted him as saying.
'... a civilian conflict. One could also say a civilian war. But the war is more of a global concept, and this is a ciilian conflict', Kolomoysky shared his view, speaking of the war in Donbas.
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.
