Prime Minister of Ukraine, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, expects to drive out Russia from Crimea, which formerly belonged to Ukraine.
Despite Ukraine not being a member of NATO, Yatsenyuk believes with Western help, reports the Russian newspaper Sputnik, citing the Ukrainian news agency UNN.
- We need to regain control of Donetsk and Luhansk, and take back Crimea. This task involves restoring the state's territorial integrity, and Kiev hopes that its Western partners will help to regulate the conflict in Donbass, said Arseniy Yatsenyuk, according to the Ukrainian news agency.
Yatsenyuk believes that Ukraine's Western partners will "do everything not to let our guys die in the war."
"Western media reports, however, that more and more often, the EU and the United States are dissatisfied with the lack of progress in Ukraine," writes Sputnik and links to a Reuters article that states that the "Obama-branded Ukraine project" is on the verge of collapse.
Meanwhile, the US ambassador to Ukraine, Geoffrey Pyatt, has repeatedly criticized Ukraine for the country's inability to implement reforms and fight corruption.
