“And the things that happened in Donbas are really the things as we consider them?...It is inner civil conflict, Kolomoysky said.
According to him, Donbas Conflict “is not inspired by anyone, by Russia”, despite the presence of the Russian hardware and military there.
“The Russian hardware stays there and will stay. Until the conflict continues, the Russian hardware stays. It is the realities of life. Yes, it is present there. And we have the American hardware on this side. So what? Do we have Javelin? Who provided this hardware?,” the businessman said.
Kolomoysky added that the U.S. provided the hardware to Ukraine “to support the conflict in Donbas”, because “it is profitable for America to keep sanctions against Russia”.
“Anyway, it was so during the term of the previous president. And current president (Donald Trump), as for me, has another point of view, but he does not know how to get out from it,” Kolomoysky said.
It is noted tat the businessman recognized not only the presence of the Russian hardware in Donbas but also the presence of the Russian troops. “We say that the Russian troops stay in Donbas. It is a fact. They, however, disguised as people on vacation or someone else”.
He added that they came to Ukraine to “perform international duty” as from Western Europe and the U.S., however, he did not specify people.
“But we have the basis, the ground of the conflict – it is inner-Ukrainian conflict, which, by the way, was prepared for 20 years. At least from 2004, the elections Yushchenko-Yanukovych. Then it was figured out for the first time that we are ready to it,” Kolomoysky concluded.
As we reported in Dortmund, a citizen of Germany faced trial as he is suspected in the participation in the combat actions in Donbas at the side of the militants of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic.
