"A clean-up, updating of Ukraine's map today is a resolute answer to [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, the same way as our achievements on the eastern front are. This is a strategic and visionary issue," he said at a press conference in Kyiv on Monday.

Parubiy says that the history of the hybrid war against Ukraine is the way of keeping the country in the Soviet past psychologically and mentally.
