Political analyst Rostislav Ishenko considers that Ukrainian authorities start to sell the idea that the Lugansk and Donetsk Peoples Republics are not the territory of Ukraine any more.
Kiev accepts its political and military demise. The idea that without Donbas Ukraine will easily joins the EU is widely spread between Ukrainian politicians and officials.
Ukrainian authorities understand that there is no solution by force of Donbass conflict. Kiev is ready to let the LPR and DPR to the four winds and continues EU integration without rebellious Donbas. This idea wins widespread support of Ukrainian people more and more with every passing day – considers Ishenko.
