 Donetsk Governor Predicts Protests in Occupied Donbas: Local Residents Will Sweep This Bunch of Radicals

Chairman of the Donetsk Regional State Administration Oleksandr Kikhtenko expects an increase of protests among the residents of the territories under the control of terrorists in the near future.

He said this at a joint briefing with chairman of the Luhansk Regional State Administration Hennadii Moskal at the Presidential Administration on Tuesday evening, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrinform.

"I think that the time is now working for the state and the unity of Ukraine," the governor said.

"Protests are growing, and I think we will live to see the time when the residents of the occupied Donbas will sweep away this small bunch of radicals who take businesses, shoot innocent people, and terrorize these areas," Kikhtenko said.

"We are doing everything we can to ensure that today the region lives quietly and feels the difference between that and our territory. And the difference is very significant, as the state apparatus today solves numerous problems, which no one out there will solve," the chairman of the Donetsk Administration stated.

"The colds are approaching, there are so many problems that we - the government of Ukraine - resolve today. These handouts in the form of humanitarian aid (in occupied territories - Ed.) are just a PR campaign, they do not provide for all the needs of the people living in the occupied territories, and they already feel it. The protest sentiment is also rising," Kikhtenko said.
