"Ukraine has to drive Putin's scum beyond its territory. And not only in the Donbas but also in Crimea. This is what Ukraine needs. And at some stage, elections will take place. But only after this harmful tumor is removed. Then we can conduct elections, sing songs and walk the streets safely. I say it again, elections are the final, the last stage of freeing the territory," Turchynov said.
