Former OSCE Chairman-in-Office in Ukraine and in the Tripartite Contact Group, Martin Sajdik, compared Ukraine to a "gnome" and Russia to a "giant", who “threatens the gnome”, Kommersant reports.

Sajdik argues that Russia should not threaten Ukraine.

"Why is confrontation going on? A giant does not have to tell a gnome: 'you are a threat to me'. But for a gnome, a giant is a threat. A giant has to instill confidence in gnome and should not demand the same in response. And what are you doing? In general, a giant yells, makes noises and says: 'if you do not do something, I will turn it off'," Martin Sajdik said.

Sajdik added that all "giants" behave the same way, including America.

"We are now talking about Europe, about our space. But there is also the same question - how do they (the U.S. - ed.) treat Canada, Mexico. Here we have to answer: have we instilled confidence in our neighbors, who are less than us? Is there such a policy in Russia? Why do these gnome-countries start to fear? Because someone from overseas tells them: ‘now you have to be afraid?' No, that is not true,” he emphasized.

As we reported earlier, Andrei Kozenko, the lawmaker of Russia's State Duma from the annexed Crimea claimed that the areas of temporarily occupied Donbas are "special subjects" of the Russian Federation. The video with his comment is published on the Union TV company's YouTube channel, Strana.ua informed.
