I.Kyva: "We will return Ukraine's nuclear status. We will return Donbas and Crimea"


Ukraine should rely, first of all, on its own forces in the matter of the return of Donbas and Crimea, Head of the Socialist Party of Ukraine (SPU) Illia Kyva has said on Russia 1 TV channel.

"Whatever they decide at the upcoming NATO summit, it would not resolve the conflict. President Poroshenko is not able to negotiate, because our NATO partners see that while the Ukrainian guys are dying in the front, the Roshen cakes are sold everywhere in Moscow. I, as a person confidently coming to power, can say: we will return Donbas and Crimea after Ukraine becomes a strong country," the politician said.

Kyva also promised to return Ukraine's nuclear status after he is elected the president.

"We will correct what the criminals, who plundered the army and the country, did. We will restore our defense capability. I will return Ukraine's nuclear status. We have enough technology for this. And you, the Russians, will talk with us on equal terms. You know perfectly well that you can negotiate today only from a position of strength. And we will make you respect our country," Kyva said.
