Despite what was reported about the positive atmosphere that marred the first meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his Ukrainian counterpart, Volodymyr Zelinsky on the tenth of December in Paris, the government of the latter, despite its pledges to pursue a peaceful policy towards Moscow, intentionally restricted Russian interests and reputation away from Direct confrontation with American-Israeli push, support, and incitement.
At the end of the summit, the Ukrainian president committed to strengthening the cease-fire and holding elections in the provinces of Donetsk and Luhansk, which are two eastern provinces of the country on the Russian border, and are considered “an open wound in the heart of Europe” according to the description of French President Emmanuel Macron, who participated in the summit alongside German Chancellor Angela Merkel .
But it seems that this wound will remain open, as the government in Kiev refuses to hold elections in the two provinces, or a referendum on autonomy, since the majority of the population is of Russian origin, and demands control over them with all the details, which will threaten the credibility of the results according to previous experiences of the Ukrainian government.
According to sources and reports, it examined the restrictions on the inhabitants of the two provinces in a suffocating way, to the point of preventing and prosecuting those who speak the Russian dialect, as well as on religious freedom, freedom of expression and opinion, and examined human rights violations through arrests on the pretext of affiliation to the opposition, and on the basis that the constitution prohibits non-circulation Ukrainian language.
In exchange for these actions and restrictions, according to the information received, Kiev, in cooperation with “Crimean Tatar leader Mustafa Jamilov”, began preparing for a million march to the Russian Crimea.
The name of this march is called “The Return March “, and Jamilov appeared with the blessing of a; Ukraine to conclude agreements with the Circassian minorities and charities in several Arab and Western countries in order to join the march in order to restrict Moscow and pressure it in front of the international community.
