Internal Minister Arsen Avakov announced during the visit to Sievierodonetsk that security officers should be ready for return of Donbas today. 112 Ukraine TV channel was broadcasting the press conference.
"We possess sociology from another side saying that 70% of people want to return in Ukraine. Yes, they have their fears, they are constantly brainwashed by Putin television propaganda. But these people feel they will be better with Ukraine. Thus the Internal Ministry, police, State Emergency Service and everybody else should be ready for this. We have to be ready for this. I assign those tasks when we are speaking at the serious meeting and for wide audience. For border guard, National Guard and police representatives," minister said.
