"The information about alleged 'gifts' from us to Russia cannot be taken seriously. They are more like sick fancies of Russia's current leadership," he said, adding that the Donbas, as well as Crimea, is an integral part of Ukraine. In addition, the NSDC secretary noted that the budget financing of the occupied territories will be resumed in full immediately after the Ukrainian authorities regain control over these regions, "and after the current Ukrainian legislation and the Constitution operation will be reinstated."

"As long as these territories are occupied by Russia, their budgetary funding is not possible, because Ukraine will not finance occupiers, terrorists, and war against its own people," Oleksandr Turchynov said.
