Portnikov: The Independence Day in 2018 differs from last in the fact that we don't know what will be the Independence Day of 2019


Political chaos with high probability will define political realities of 2019 that can become the prolog to the next crash of the Ukrainian state. Such opinion was expressed by the political analyst Vitaly Portnikov.

isn't possible to Predict the future of Ukraine for the year ahead today. About it in a column for the website "Espreso" the political analyst Vitaly Portnikov has written.

"An Independence Day in 2018 differs from similar holidays of last years in the fact that we don't know what will be the Independence Day of 2019. We don't know at all, we can't even assume. And business at all not in figures which take the place in the government stands today. Business first of all in that level of total irresponsibility which is shown at all levels today - from the power to ordinary citizens", - he has said.

the Lack of confidence of Ukrainians in politicians can lead the country to chaos, Portnikov claims.

"When the leading candidates for presidential post can brag of trust of limited number of supporters, and most of citizens doesn't know for whom it is going to give the votes or isn't interested in the result of elections at all, the probability of coming to power of any irresponsible easy rider and then emergence of the chaotic disorganized parliament which will be in the permanent conflict with this easy rider is high. Here what can define political realities of 2019 and to become the prolog to the next crash of the Ukrainian state and its return to the status of the Russian satellite or dismembered by enemies Walk - fields", - the journalist considers.

according to Portnikov, the leading politicians and businessmen of Ukraine realize a situation, but continue to be engaged "in intrigues, coordination of positions, knocking-out in preference, "swing" and "kidka".

"Needs only to note that we couldn't use up to the end chance which has been given us not just by history, and sacrifice of the people who have died on the Maidan and during war on Donbass. Chance which has developed thanks to confluence of historical circumstances - a victory of a revolt and a strategic mistake of [Russian President Vladimir] of Putin who has decided to answer this victory with war. And here the transition period comes to the end, and we haven't matured - and we don't want to mature. And to appeal to common sense there is no opportunity any more", - the author has summed up.

Presidential elections have to take place in Ukraine on March 31, 2019. The same year will pass also parliamentary elections.

according to a July opinion poll of the GfK company, any of possible candidates for president of Ukraine didn't collect more than 10% of votes.
