As Long as Russia Exists in Anything Like Its Current Borders, Ukraine will Never Know Peace, Yahun Says

Paul Goble

            Staunton, Dec. 29 – Ukraine has no choice but to support non-Russian movements within the current borders of the Russian Federation, Viktor Yahun says, because if the Russian Federation remains in its current borders with its current system, Ukraine will never know peace. Instead, that country will only “lie in wait and attack again.”

            The former major general of the Ukrainian Security Service says that those who think that pushing Russian forces back to the 1991 borders is sufficient for the future are deceiving themselves (

            If that is all Ukraine achieves, Yahun continues, “the occupiers will crawl back into their swamps and hide there for 20 to 30 years; but they will then come out of these swamps once again. That’s why supporting national minorities and liberation movements on the territory of the Russian Federation is so important.

            The retired security officer says that “there has always been a place for Naziism and racism in Russia” and that such attitudes power the formation of “aggressive social movements.” Most of these are based on the ethnic Russian nation, but some have their roots in non-Russian groups as the recent incident at the Makhachkala airport showed.
