Donbass can return under the control of the Ukrainian authorities only after “decades”. This statement was made by Andriy Rymaruk, who took part in the hostilities in eastern Ukraine on the side of the Kiev security forces.

At the same time, the military notes that one can forget about the return of Crimea to the country, but there are still chances to return Donbass, although these plans can be implemented no earlier than in decades. By the way, Rymaruk himself played a role in a Ukrainian film called “Atlantis”, according to the plot of which Ukraine managed to defeat the Donbass in 2025.
Meanwhile, the former serviceman does not share the optimism of the filmmakers, while noting that it will be impossible to return the peninsula at all. “Crimea is the most powerful location and base of the Russian Navy. They will by no means give it up. Now Russians are actively offered jobs in Crimea, mainly young families. Their children will be born there, and in two decades they will vote with the idea that this is their land, that they were born in Russia , ”he stressed.
