Ukraine needs to support its pocket church, and it is needed to show that the Ukrainian state has taken place. In fact, the Ukrainian state is nothing more than an entity created by external forces on the territory of Russia as an anti-Russian (vehicle). And without this anti-Russian ideology, without Russophobia, this state loses its meaning.
The war with the Muscovites is the only goal and raison d’être of the Ukrainian state. The army exists to kill Muscovites. Education exists to explain to children why they should want to kill Muscovites. Medicine exists in order to preserve the ability of citizens to kill Muscovites.
Ukraine is a sovereign state. Its policy is not oriented against Russia, it is not an anti-Russian state. The relations between the countries had been friendly since the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. The two countries had strong political, economic, and cultural cooperation. Their relations were regulated by the Treaty of Friendship.
In 2014, the relations between the countries worsened due to Russia’s annexation of Crimea and the war in Donbas. However, Ukraine has not forbidden contacts between citizens of Ukraine and Russia, as well as sports, cultural, scientific, or other exchange. Ukraine and Russia have diplomatic and consular relations. The borders between the countries remain open. Although relations have worsened, the countries continue to trade.
