 Regime Will Take Ukraine 20 Years Back and Turn it into Belarus, Says Former Azarov’s Minister

The deputy says that the country is being prepared to obeying Russia.

Today, deputy Viktor Baloga once again expressed fears regarding attempts to bend Ukraine to the will and policy of its northern neighbors, wrote the politician on his Facebook page.

"My worst expectations are coming true - the new government team is preparing candidates focused on the Eastern vector of development of the state. And it's not about good neighborly relations. It's much more serious," wrote the politician, "authorities are preparing the reincarnation of the Project which the Ukrainian people escaped 20 years ago. This is the worst imaginable scenario for Ukraine. And it is very sad that this attempt comes at the first stage of Ukrainian integration into a civilized society."

Baloga is confident that Eastern integration is not the right path for solving Ukraine's problems but it is their conserving.

"Politically and economically, for us, this means building Belarus-2 project. And the project will be realized by old and well known staff, for whom this is a chance to return from oblivion. It is a pity that the current government is falling for it. They and subsequently we are offered to step on the same rake - not painted and just as rotten and rusty as it was," said Baloga. "In this situation, those who now consider themselves to be masters of the situation, in a year or two will become worse "little brothers" - they will be stepchildren.

According to him, the legal framework for the eastern vector of foreign policy of Ukraine is ready. This means the regime is about to implement it.
