The Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Pavlo Klimkin, believes that in the territories of the Donbas occupied by the militants, people live in a parallel information reality created by Russia. Therefore, first of all, Ukraine needs to win back the minds of its citizens, reports Joinfo.ua citing “Channel 5”.
“The burning of the sanctions production in Russia resembles a parallel reality. And it is one of the elements of Russian information aggression promoted and in the Donbas,” said Pavlo Klimkin. He believes that the main problem today is an explanation of the real picture to the inhabitants of the occupied territories.
“Donbas is not only a geographic point on the map, Donbas is really our people who, unfortunately, are under the influence of the furious Russian propaganda. They should be explained that for them, Ukraine is a way forward. European Ukraine. But not what is happening now in Russia. When I see how they burn anything… This is a parallel reality. But people are in this parallel reality around the clock,” Klimkin said.
