http://www.kmu.gov.ua/img/1x1.gif”A Putin’s objective was to make Ukraine drop off the core geopolitical radars and aftermath to capture the country outspreading deeper. But Ukraine has been and still remains a principal partner for the West, hence, none will shut their eyes to Russia”, Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk told in an interview with Ukrainian TV channels on Friday, December 4.

"If someone thinks that Russia has stopped, if someone thinks that the war is over - no. Now Russia has switched the attention of the world to Syria, to the situation with Turkey", explained Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

He said he considers it "part of a Russian plan": "To make Ukraine drop off the core geopolitical radars – it was Putin's task. And then the creeping expansion to continue capturing Ukraine. Both through a military operation that has not been removed from the agenda, as dozens thousands of Russian gangsters and terrorists are still deployed in Donetsk and Luhansk regions, and through the political destabilization inside Ukraine".

"Everyone keeps in mind Ukraine as it was ten years ago. The relationship between the President and the Prime Minister, within the ruling coalition. In fact, some of the players in this political standoff remained today in Ukrainian politics. Therefore we have no right to give way, first of all, to the internal political destabilization, the squabbles that destroy the state", urged Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

The Head of Government emphasized that the Russian plan on making Ukraine disappearing from the public view could have happened to be: "But, recent visits of our European partners and in the first place a visit of Vice President of the United States of America Joe Biden are clear signals that Ukraine has been and still remains a principal partner for the West, so nobody will shut their eyes to Russia and nobody will be negotiating backdoor about the future of Ukraine with Russia".

"It's about the values of the free world," he said.

The Prime Minister also stressed the importance of "Russia being aware that the national security and defence of Ukraine is financed, we are rebuilding the army".
