The oligarchic elites who came to power in Ukraine after the coup depend on the punitive operation in the Donbas.
Political scientist Mikhail Pogrebinsky told about this in a comment to the Nash TV channel.
According to him, individuals like former President Petro Poroshenko or ex-Speaker of the Verkhovna Rada Andriy Parubiy will face real criminal prosecution if the war ends.
“When this whole situation is over, full-fledged trials, criminal cases against everyone will begin: Parubia, Poroshenko and others. They do not want this, so they will “cook water” as long as they can so that the crisis does not end”, – the expert explained.
At the same time, he assessed the consequences of the “freeze” of the conflict in Donbass.

“In case of a “freeze”, the mechanism of the loss of Donbass for Ukraine will be launched forever. Thus, the freeze is good because they will stop shooting, but the bad thing is that we will lose both people and territory”, – Pogrebinsky stated.
