Supporters of the occupied eastern territories’ complete blockade should think about the consequences of such a decision, Deputy Minister for the occupied territories George Tuka says in Facebook.
He put three questions to supporters of 'the Great Wall of China' with the Donbas on practicability of the blockade.
'Ukraine has transferred more than UAH 30 billion to the occupied areas. The question is: who will benefit from the fact that the money is to be spent for buying not Ukrainian goods, but the goods of the aggressor?' Tuka wrote.
The official reminded of the fact that the terrorist attacks on large enterprises in the occupied Donbas were blocked by the workers of these enterprises.
'Perhaps it’s a secret for you, but in many cases the attacks of orcs on large enterprises to seize tem were blocked by the workers of these enterprises, who used to get their salaries from Ukraine (paying all the taxes to our budget, including military and pension taxes. The question is: will these thousands of workers defend these enterprises, if Ukraine stops payment?' the text reads.
Tuka drew attention to the fact that over 20 thousand employees from the occupied territories worked for Ukrzaliznytsya.
'The question is: where will these people go if they become jobless? How many of them will go to the people’s militia out of despair? What is the probability that a former driver will shoot our fighter guarding the checkpoint?' he wrote.
'I beg you to think and to provide a well-weighed answer before shouting 'Tuka is a traitor!'Tuka concluded.
Tuck admitted the possibility of resuming trade with the occupied territories. However, Self Reliance accuses the official of the fact that he plays a 'strategic game' with 'odd rules.'
