Kremlin prepares Plan B for Ukraine with Medvedchuk's proposals – Ukraine's Security Council Secretary:
Oleksii Danilov, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, said that the Kremlin is hatching a plan "B" after the failure to capture all of Ukraine, proposals for which will be prepared by Viktor Medvedchuk, a pro-Russian Ukrainian politician whose daughter's godfather is Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Source: Danilov in the interview with BBC
Quote: "Russia now faces the task of creating the so-called Korean option. The Kremlin has realised that they cannot completely seize our country, and they will now make a plan B when they will make the so-called ‘Second Ukraine'."
Details: The Secretary of the National Security Council said that the plan was proposed by Medvedchuk himself. "Medvedchuk was the one to bring that mad plan there. Medvedchuk believes that he is an expert on Ukraine, but he is not, he is just a traitor," Danilov explained.
According to Danilov, Medvedchuk, together with pro-Russian "experts" from the banned pro-Russian Opposition Platform – For Life political party, will "give a proposal for the creation of two countries".
Russia's goal, in his opinion, is to do everything in the near future to completely occupy Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts along with the land corridor to Crimea, and then implement this idea of dividing Ukraine. --->READ MORE HERE
