If the terrorists are supported by Russians, and if they are not driven out forever, then this country will always be in a state of war," Kvitashvili said. "It is a good thing that not the whole country is involved in this, but the infrastructure is destroyed in the most industrial region, and humanitarian aid is not accepted with the exception of a few convoys," he said.
