Ukrainian commander says Putin will be gone soon
The commander of the national guard of Ukraine, Lieutenant-General Yuri Allerov believes that the war in the Donbass will not last long, because Russian president "Putin will not be round for long".

“I know that you can not wish anyone to die, but it would really be better for everyone,” Allerov said in an interview to Ukrainian media.
The Ukrainian general drew parallels with the development of Germany and the USSR after Hitler and Stalin: Eastern Germany “chose a different path of development, turning into a prosperous country of Europe”. He said Russia had “thawed” similarly towards multinational corporatism under former president Yeltsin.
“Russia also, after the collapse of the Soviet Union experienced its ‘thaw’ in the times of Yeltsin. And there is a hope that there will not be a second Putin there now,” the Ukrainian commander added.
Yeltsin crushed opposition to his reforms in 1993 by sending in tanks to attack the parliament, where his opponents were gathered. Putin’s predeccor only rarely openly criticized Putin as in 2000, when Putin reinstated the old Soviet anthem, and in 2004, when Putin started the rollback of federalism, rampant corruption and the plundering of Russian state assests.
When Yeltsin obtained power in late 1991, he hastened the demise of the Soviet economy which was already falling apart. Russians remember the hardships and poverty that Yeltsin’s rule brought, enriching only a few oligarchs.
In contrast to Yeltsin’s vodka-induced pro-globalist appearances, Putin appears sober, athletic, self-controlled and concerned about the well-being of his people.
Last year in Ukraine, meanwhile, 136 publishers were forced to close. This was reported by the president of the Ukrainian Association of Publishers and Booksellers Alexander Afonin.
“Last year alone, 136 publishers ceased their work. There is a certain regrouping. There is a cohort, somewhere around 30 publishers, increasing their volumes, but at the same time, the number of publishers that have 5-10 books in their range annually decreases,” he said.
Afonin also noted that the Ukrainian Publishers Association estimates the Ukrainian market today at only 110 million euros after the Ukrainian government clamped down on minorities in the country, including Russians and Hungarians.
