Putin is a generation late with implementing his plans. While he was preparing, a new generation has grown in Ukraine, one that can’t imagine itself without Ukraine, and Ukraine outside of Europe. The active members of this generation have destroyed the plans of the ‘great restorer of the Empire’ on Maidan, and now they are destroying them in Eastern Ukraine not only as activists, but as soldiers. The history book that Tabachnyk [pro-Kremlin Minister of Education from Yanukovych’s clan] has done its job – it has educated patriots. And due to natural causes the proportions of this generation relative to the old sovietdom rise steadily. It will be representatives of this generation that will finally dot the i’s in the confrontation between Ukraine and Russia and in the attempts to restore the Soviet Union. Even with two dots.
