Ogryzko: Putin will not benefit from annexing "Novorossiya", it will speed up economic collapse
Putin will not annex the occupied regions in the east of Ukraine, he will not benefit from it, the Ukrainian diplomat Vladimir Ogryzko said in the comment to the GORDON .
"There is a belief that Putin has reached a deadlock and is now hectically looking for a way out. The Crimea is enough for everything to start crashing, of course, with the help of the West and its sanctions. If he takes over several million people and destroyed territory, it will actually mean considerable speeding-up of the economic collapse," he reported.
According to Ogryzko, the option of a frozen conflict is the most suitable for Putin.
He will not gain anything from annexing these enclaves with all their problems. It was his objective to create permanent tension
"I think that the best option for him is a frozen conflict where he can throw wood to keep it burning. He will not gain anything from annexing these enclaves with all their problems. It was his objective to create permanent tension. I do not think that he will agree to annex these regions to Russia now," the diplomat stated.
