A hot war with Russia is impossible as it will carry too high a price for Russia, ex-president Leonid Kuchma said, Liga.net reports March 28.
“I don’t believe Russia will attack Ukraine. It will carry the price for Russia which cannot be calculated,” he said.
Kuchma warned Ukraine politicians against the power games that can divide Ukraine.
“If Ukraine politicians continue the tug-of-war, the divide of the country will be quite possible,” Kuchma said.
The stand-off with Russia will continue as a trade war, he predicted.
“As a result, the economic situation will worsen. We can hardly avoid the trade war,” Leonid Kuchma said.
