April 8, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Kozak said at a meeting of the Institute of World Economy and International Relations of the Russian Academy of Sciences that Kiev’s operation in Donbas was a public relations act of simulating military threats in an attempt to solve the political crisis in Ukraine, and there could not really be a plan to launch an all-out war.
At the same time, Kozak also said that anything can happen. Kozak stressed that the military action taken by the Kiev authorities in Donbas would be the beginning of Ukraine’s end. If necessary, Russia can stand up to protect the people of Donbas.
Kozak believes that if the parties consistently abide by the previous agreement, the conflict can be resolved within one year.
