Igar Tyshkevich explained the meaning of Zakharchenko’s resonant statement about “Malorossia”

What is the difference between the concepts of new “Malorossia” and “Novorossia”, which was before? “Novorossia”, which was promoted in 2014, concerned only a part of Ukraine, so it was possible to talk about some separatist sentiments. “Malorossia”, however, lays claim to the whole territory of Ukraine. Accordingly, further continuation of the conflict – is a confirmation of the Kremlin’s thesis on the “civil war” in Ukraine: there are two “state formations” that claim the same territory. It is done in order to remove the issue of separatism. If Kiev tries to put forward a thesis about reformation of the Minsk process, then the Kremlin can come up with counter-initiatives, providing an argument called “Malorossia”.
