Kyiv, November 14. Ukrainian troops were able to go to the border with Russia, but they will have to completely destroy Donetsk, Lugansk and other cities of Donbass, which Kiev does not control. On Tuesday said the former Minister of defence of Ukraine Alexander Kuzmuk.
"the Ukrainian army could reach the border with Russia. In the potential we can, but will have to erase from the face of the earth, Donetsk, Lugansk, Gorlovka and other cities," he said.
At the same time, Kuzmuk says that this plan is complicated by the presence of civilians who refuse to leave their homes.
In this case, the attack of the Ukrainian army would be fraught with a large number of civilian casualties, Ukrainian media reported.
Recall that the Verkhovna Rada adopted in the first reading introduced by the President the bill on the reintegration of Donbass, which allows Ukrainian troops to resume full-scale military action in Eastern Ukraine..
