"First of all, I would like to let go of those people who say such things. The farther they go the better for Ukraine. Any coin has two sides, any applause is made with two hands," Tuka said during a public online chat on Glavred.

He’s a separatist, scoundrel, and bastard. And now another person wearing a vyshyvanka [traditional embroidered shirt][…] says: 'Donbas must be separated from Ukraine.' Can you spot any difference between them? The difference may be only external. But both have the same idea, to have Ukraine separated. Therefore, I consider enemies both of them," he said.
