The Head of the Donetsk People's Republic, Alexander Zakharchenko, said that Kiev's actions towards Donbas do not arouse the desire to return under the control of the government of Ukraine.
"The state, which by all means is trying to occupy, destroy, circle with barbed wire, throw tanks, aviation, regular army units, to destroy people who did not recognize the power of Kiev, you think it is possible to join back to this country? To join it under some contractual obligation? No. The abyss that is between us is a chasm on the blood of our people," Zakharchenko said on the air of a television programme "Frank Conversation".
He noted that "the actions that Ukraine is carrying out now and was carrying out before do not bring Donbass closer to the desire to return to its composition."
