When asked to evaluate Poroshenko's reign, Kolomoysky replied the following: 'Well, he managed to do the most important thing, he saved the country from you. By the time he came, Crimea was gone already, and Donbas was de facto captured. He stopped the aggression".
"I could criticize him all I want, but not in front of you. We'll handle our issues on our own", Kolomoysky added.
Last month, Kolomoysky was interviewed by NV magazine. In it, he said that the war in Donbas was a "civilian conflict", and the Russian troops there "live up to their international duty". He then said that the conflict was not inspired by Russia, despite the fact that there are Russian forces in the occupied territory of eastern Ukraine.
