Russia will not abandon Donbass no matter what, but before making any decision, one must think about the consequences, said Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“You understand, of course, before my eyes there are some people who were injured and mutilated, especially children, in the Donbass. But on ours with you – I speak ours, because you are the fourth estate – on ours, shoulders a huge responsibility for Russia as a whole. And before making any decision, we must think about the consequences of any of our steps. We will not abandon the Donbass, no matter what,” Putin said at a meeting with editors of Russian media, footage of which showed by “Russia 24”.
