Summary

Volyn and Vinnitsa may secede from Ukraine, according to commander of a battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Anatoly Vinogrodsky.

Disproof

In fact, Mr. Vinogrodsky did not mention secession at all. At a press conference on 16 January 2017, he questioned the necessity of granting special status to Donbas, pointing out the discontent of other regions with the fact that their taxes go towards paying the tariffs on Donbas, and who should, by this logic, also demand special status.
