YEREVAN, February 20. /ARKA/. The recent violent clashes in Ukraine may lead to Ukraine’s breaking-up as a united state, well-know Russian expert and president of Scientific Society for Caucasus Studies Alexander Krylov said.
The events may be considered as a start of a civil war where mass bloodshed and North-African or Syrian intervention scenarios are really possible, the expert said in his interview to Novosti-Armenia.
It is clear state mechanisms are collapsing, the government is losing the power in the western regions local law-enforcement is unable and unwilling to resist, Krylov said.
Under these circumstances, the authorities should mobilize all resources and take tough measures to suppress the anarchy, but, apparently, they are not ready to do it, the expert said. This means Ukraine may break-up as a united state, because local governments will have to deal with their security on their own in the condition of paralyzed central power, Krylov said. –0--
