According to Russian leaders, an attempt by the US to transform Ukraine into the antithesis of Russia will lead to a split in Ukraine. “The result of the policy of the West and the Kiev regime it controls can only lead to the disintegration of Ukraine into several states.” The head of the Russian Security Council, Nikolai Patrushev, told the state-run Rossiskaya Gazeta on Tuesday.
In an interview, Patrushev accused the United States of injecting nationalism into Ukrainians and inciting them against Russia. “But hatred can never become a credible factor of national unity,” said the confidant of the Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin. Russia justifies the war in Ukraine by the fact that the leadership in Kiev oppresses “ethnic Russians” and the Russian-speaking part of the population.
Initially, the Kremlin described the military operation merely as a protective measure for the pro-Russian separatist regimes in Donetsk and Lugansk, which Moscow recognized. Now, last week, a high-ranking army general also named the capture of southern Ukraine as a target. Recently, there has been speculation that a referendum on secession is to be held in the South Russian region of Kherson.
