“They fear that their speculations on the subject of Donbass will come to an end, they are afraid that the European Union will leave them one on one and with the upcoming default, and the loss of the Russian market – obviously this will happen from 1 January effect of the well-known causes and events,” said Naryshkin.

In his opinion, for Ukraine and for the vast majority of people in this country “the results of this year look very disappointing.” The final decision came from the fact that by the end of 2015, the Minsk agreements should be implemented, should be adopted and enter into force the law on the special status of separate districts of Luhansk and Donetsk regions, the law on local elections, Amnesty, and, finally, the new Constitution of Ukraine”, – continued the head of the chamber. Meanwhile, “none of this happened and, obviously, the end of the year will not happen, and if it did happen, it would put an end to this grave civil confrontation, and possibly on the territory of Ukraine would be restored to the long-awaited peace”, he said.

“But this did not happen until the restoration of peace, apparently, very far, due to the unyielding position of official Kiev”, – said Naryshkin.
The Chairman of the state Duma has noticed that “by all indications, the EU is now, of course, not to Ukraine, he is forced to fight for their future, to save the Schengen area, to search for answers and terrorist, and migration challenges, as well as more solid attempts of some members of the EU to regain previously lost national sovereignty”.

“Civil harmony in Ukraine, even the minimum, just throw from the government offices the current leaders of the Kiev regime, as their main reliance is an aggressive and armed minority, the official Kiev promotes their ideology, which is already impregnated and poisoned as legislative acts and the atmosphere of activity of the Ukrainian Parliament”, – he added.
