Commissioner of the President of Ukraine for the peaceful settlement of the situation in the Donbass Iryna Herashchenko stated that Ukraine will not exchange the Crimea for the Donbass. She wrote about it on her Facebook page, reacting in this way to the statement of the People's Deputy Savchenko that the liberation of the Donbass peacefully will lead to the surrender of the Crimea.
"We will not exchange the Crimea for the Donbass. We also will not relinquish the Donbass. We will gnaw out every inch of the Ukrainian land. We will fight for every Ukrainian. Ukraine is Lviv and Kiev, but also the Crimea and the Donetsk and Luhansk. You cannot regard the territory of Ukraine as your election district, where we fight for those who support us, and those who do not conceive are crossed out. We are struggling for all", - I.Heraschenko stressed.
She noted that the main goal is the restoration of the sovereignty and territorial integrity of the territory of Ukraine within the borders of 2013.
"And no one, no political force or any people's deputy who is trying to implant doubt in mind, mood of defeat, to impose discussion of the territories' surrender or their bargaining - will not lead us astray of the restoration of the unified and united Ukraine. We do not exchange the Crimea for the Donbass. We do not relinquish the Donbass"- she summarized.
