Deputy Secretary of national security Council and defence of Ukraine (NSDC) Sergey Krivonos said that Russia is not interested in a strong Ukraine, reported the press service of the NSDC.

“Russia is not interested in a strong Ukraine. The goal of the military leadership of Russia is to regain the superpower status. For this, they need to return to the bosom of the former Russian Empire, and now Putin’s Empire, 40 million Slavs”, – said S. Krivonos in the program “Rendezvous” on “the 5th channel”.

S. Krivonos noted that Russia “is categorically unprofitable to return territories and to end the war, which, according to their plan, should continue as long as possible”.
