And this allowed the enemy to understand, that during an attack their losses would be minimal. They attacked and occupied our territory ... As long as the authorities plunders and steals, nothing will change in the country”, the politician said.

“And after Yanukovych, the army is plundered with such zeal and such nationalism and patriotism, in pure Ukrainian. It is not language determines patriotism and love for the country, but your actions. Look at these people from the NSDC, who are involved in the looting of “Ukroboronprom”. We lost the Crimea, because the government manipulates us, throws up the themes of language, religion, all in order to divert attention from theft”, I.Kyva summed up.
