Exactly one year ago, on 12 July, 2021, Russian President Vladimir Putin published an article “On the historical unity of Russians and Ukrainians”.

It actually denied Ukraine’s right to statehood and sovereignty.

It stated that the Ukrainian state had no right to a significant part of its territories, which were the “historical territories” of Russia, the latter had been “robbed” of them at one time.

It stated that the Ukrainian state was not independent, but was under “external control” by the West.

This article announced what later started on 24 February, 2022. Nothing was hidden. Anyone who wanted to could see it.

A week later, the founder of Yabloko, Grigory Yavlinsky, replied to this article, analysing in detail the fundamental fallacy of its provisions.
