 Russia has better chance to repeat Yugoslav scenario than Ukraine, - Turchynov

NSDC Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov commented on the statement of Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev that Ukraine ran the risk of disappearing like Yugoslavia in case of granting autonomy to Donbas.

"There is a saying in the Bible: "He who sows the wind, shall reap the whirlwind." This is what the Russian officials are engaged in predicting Yugoslav scenario for Ukraine. They are jumping out of skin in order to create it, being not reluctant to indulge in shelling of peaceful neighborhoods of the Ukrainian cities and shooting down civilian planes," Oleksandr Turchynov said stressing Ukraine's ability to resist the aggression of the Russian Federation, protect itself and eventually reclaim the temporarily occupied territories of the Donbas and Crimea, Censor.NET reports citing the press service of the National Security and Defense Council.

According to him, Russia itself has better chance to dissolve under the Yugoslav scenario "being the colossus with feet of clay". "At the same time many Russia's powerful and serious neighbors are keeping a close eye on it especially on its eastern part, as on a canned food, which should be open in the near future," he added.

However, the NSDC Secretary noted that the totalitarian regime in Russia was trying to hold back national liberation movements "either bribing or suppressing them and switch the maturing large-scale social discontent to the fictional artificially-created external enemies."

"But the history of the USSR shows that this situation can not last long. The collapse of the empire built on fear and lies, which had begun in the early 90s of the last century, was only temporarily suspended," he said.

"The intervention of the Soviet Union that took place in the 80s has triggered the collapse of the empire while the current Russian intervention will become the factor which will complete the process of its dissipation," Oleksandr Turchynov said.
