The Ukrainian leadership missed its chance for a sovereign state, – the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova
“They have already missed the main chance for the existence of Ukraine within their own borders, a sovereign Ukraine, an independent Ukraine,” she said.
If you read between the diplomatic lines and Zakharova does not carry a gag, then this can be understood in such a way that a course has been taken for the annexation of Ukraine.
"They have already missed the main chance for the existence of Ukraine within their own borders … an independent Ukraine."
Russian Foreign Ministry talking about annexation??!
This is Russian bluster, or Ukrainians aren’t doing as well as advertised. Might be a bit of both.
