"It can turn out like with Crimea in 2014": Poroshenko criticized Zelensky for the idea of ​​holding a referendum on Donbass

Former President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko criticized the idea of ​​the current Ukrainian "guarantor" Volodymyr Zelensky to hold a referendum on the future fate of Donbass on the territory of the country controlled by Kiev. The politician called it - "the implementation of Putin's plans." This is stated on the official website of the Ukrainian political force "European Solidarity".

The fifth head of the country reminded the sixth that the issues of sovereignty, state structure and territorial integrity cannot be brought up for public discussion, since this is contrary to the Constitution of Ukraine. Poroshenko stressed that the head of state is obliged to observe and protect the Basic Law of the country, and not cynically violate it.

I strongly disagree with referendums being used as technology for carrying out, including non-Ukrainian decisions. I think it would be just a terrible mistake ...

- he added.

Poroshenko drew attention to the fact that such a referendum can only undermine the internal political situation in the country. It will push other regions of Ukraine “that consider themselves unhappy” to do what was observed in Crimea in 2014.

After the fake referendum in Crimea, I have a certain allergy to the way Putin's issues or Putin's interests are resolved through Ukraine. Study the lesson of 2014 carefully and do not repeat it. Because in 2014 it was much more difficult for us. If you do not know what to do, hold the NSDC, come to parliament, unite society, ask and make decisions at least on the basis of positions for which a very high price has been paid, and do not easily rush with questions of the referendum

- summed up Poroshenko, referring to Zelensky, like an experienced politician to a newcomer.

Note that Zelensky did not come up with the idea of ​​a referendum from scratch. A significant part of the elite of Ukraine wants to get rid of the uncontrolled territories of Donbass, which hinder accession to the EU and NATO, and also pose a threat to elections and the conduct of total Ukrainianization. But ordinary people are still more concerned about the end of the war.

    Well no. The move is brilliant. They can't think of anything of their own. The main thing is not how they will vote, but how they will count. Putin has already mastered this "knight's move" in 20 years perfectly. Not a single "planting" for electoral fraud. Right! Winners are not judged!

      The people vote for Putin, and what you think is your problem. And about the referendum coming out, in Minsk2 it is envisaged to adopt a new constitution, where federalization will be legalized, but Ukrainians for some reason are afraid of this, the whole world lives in federations, and lives normally. Apparently, the rogulyatin vkurse that everyone will run away, because, for 8 years, they've done a lot of things like that, and that is exactly what will happen, to run away. A more dumb creature than a roguel is difficult to find, and even impossible.

    1. The basic law of all world state formations enshrines territorial integrity and declares any attempts to violate it, including referendums, to be separatism, and in this regard, Poroshenko is unequivocally right.
    2. The ruling class of Ukraine today has not finally taken shape. After the coup, the Nazis and their leaders became the leading force, who today are fighting the old guard of oligarchs, with whose money they carried out a coup, for the redistribution of property and “raids” on Kolomoisky, Poroshenko, Medvedchuk, Akhmetov, evidence of this.
    3. Against the backdrop of global energy problems and rising prices, the uncontrolled territories of Donbass for Ukraine are akin to the Klondike during the gold rush and no one in their right mind is going to refuse them, and Ukraine's entry into the EU and NATO is a matter of time and the terms of the agreement between the Russian Federation and the United States, and if they don’t bargain, then Valery Gerasimov, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, unambiguously explained everything to everyone.

    ... the six "five" reproached the same "six" ?! wassat
    Actually, a "w / Bandera member" Giblets, nicknamed "Confectioner", "second", and "w / Bandera" Zeltz-nicknamed "Clown", "third" in a row from the anti-constitutional "maidanoprezov"!
    And the "first" such "Maidan appointee", a priori anti-constitutional, anti-national and anti-state, was "x / Bandera" Yusch, nicknamed "Dioxin"!

    Therefore, it is absolutely wild to hear from, by their very existence, cynically violating and contradicting the Constitution of Ukraine, odious "maydanopreziks", some of their mutual reproaches about "violation of the Constitution" such as these hypocritical screams of offended maydaun, they say,

    ... "This is contrary to the Constitution of Ukraine. Poroshenko stressed that the head of state is obliged to observe and protect the Basic Law of the country, and not cynically violate it."

    And we hear this from the bloody war criminal and extremist who cynically trampled on the Constitution of Ukraine during the anti-national anti-state banderonazi "Orange-Maidan-2004", and still continues to dance just as dashingly, stomping on the despicably trampled down Constitution and over the heads of his compatriots ?!
    This is already transcendental Cynicism! negative
