Deputy Minister for the temporarily occupied territories Georgiy Tuka has told about the disillusionment of the Donbass residents about the Russian world.

According to former Governor General of Luhansk region, the residents of the occupied territories have refused from the ideas about the Russian world and the king of all Russia Vladimir Putin. Tuka believes that at least 70% of the population have already disillusioned with that.

The main problem that worries them a lot is the lack of peace. Thus, we should let them know that all these things can be obtained only in Ukraine. Despite the fact that they do not consider themselves to be Ukrainians, Georgiy Tuka is sure that it’s absolutely possible to return 'the brains of the occupied territories’ population.'

According to him, there is only one way to 'return the brains': it is necessary to stop the propaganda that the population of the occupied territories is being crammed with. Ukrainian schools face particularly difficult situation. 'The things they are doing with our kids in Ukrainian schools look practically like malicious insults,' the former governor-general said.

As reported earlier by, President Petro Poroshenko and EU leaders discussed actions on the visa-free regime for Ukrainians.
