Poroshenko and Turchynov are going to declare a “hybrid war” regime in the country, which will allow to suppress discontent of citizens in any Ukrainian region, by talking on need for the end of ATO. Such opinion was expressed by Oleksandr Klymenko, the founder of the “Restoring Donbas” community initiative and the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” party, in his article.
The politician recalled that the “Three Seas Initiative” forum will take place in Wroclaw in July 2017. The US President Trump will attend this event. In addition, G20 will take place in Hamburg. Despite the fact that Ukrainian issue will be discussed during the above-mentioned meetings, the President of Ukraine is not invited there.
“It is obvious for the entire world community that Poroshenko is not going to implement the Minsk agreements … Therefore, there is a high probability that Petro Oleksiyovich will be asked to leave Minsk,” Klymenko predicted.
According to him, administration of Poroshenko understands this. Therefore, the politician considers the statement of Oleksandr Turchynov on need for the end of ATO to be a security of the authorities. After completion of ATO, it will hit its critics, who were persuading the President that ATO is inefficient.However, in case of cancellation of ATO, Poroshenko’s team will look for other legal reasons for using weapons in the East of the country.
“Martial law cannot be introduced – it is impossible to hold elections under such circumstances. Accordingly, another term is required. Turchynov called it “hybrid war”. Why is it about hybrid, not ordinary? – After the declaration of real war to the Russian Federation, there will be no obstacles for regular army to enter Kyiv. Such actions will not violate the provisions of military international law, “- Klymenko explained.
On the other hand, under new regime, the status of the uncontrolled territories of Donbas will be replaced by the status of occupied territories. The reason for this is Poroshenko’s desire to absolve himself of financial and economic responsibility for Donbas and transfer it to Russia. Klymenko recalled that relevant draft laws have already been submitted to the Verkhovna Rada.
“This is an attempt to absolve himself of responsibility in front of international authorities. First of all, it comes about the European Court of Human Rights, where Ukrainian citizens from Donbas permanently file the claims,” – the leader of the “Uspishna Kraina” stated.
In addition, Klymenko argued that such innovations would prove that Poroshenko and Turchynov are going to introduce an actual military dictatorship in Donbas. Under the new regime, it will be forbidden to hold elections among the “unreliable” electorate. That is why, Turchynov started to talk about the establishment of “operational headquarter”, which will control both civilians and military on the East of Ukraine.
Finally, the politician is confident that the “hybrid war” regime will allow Poroshenko to apply Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) against the population in any region of the country.
“The hybrid war has no boundaries, and Kremlin agents are everywhere. Accordingly, it comes about the fact that the president is able to suppress any protest of citizens and use of force by AFU”, – Klymenko believes.
The politician considers the actions of power to be a “blackmail regime” in terms of the West. At the end of the article, he emphasized that Poroshenko would neither hold elections, nor pay pensions, nor restore peace, nor implement the Minsk agreements as a whole.
Let us recall, Oleksandr Turchynov, Secretary of the NSDC, stated that it is time to complete ATO in Donbas and to move to “new format of the country’s defence” during his interview to Interfax-Ukraine. According to him, “it is time to define a new format, which will allow to effectively protect Ukraine from hybrid methods of war”.
