And for the leadership," DNR " it is vital: to save power, it is vital to maintain military pressure on the border. To survive it is necessary somehow, "- said the analyst
Hence, according to Oreshkin, and the tension on the border: the implementation of the Minsk Agreement for terrorist leaders - a sharp knife and after the resumption of control of Ukraine on the border they will be nobody - political career is over, they will have to flee to Russia and turn into losers immigrants who were large bosses, and became refugees.

....But the odds are uncomfortably long. Ukraine returned to statehood in 1991 shorn of its elites, thanks to famine, repression and Russification. The creeps and cronies who have so signally misruled the country since then have acquired great riches, and put down deep roots.
