Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba reacted rigidly to the words of Putin's press secretary Dmitry Peskov that Ukraine, as he says, is part of the "Russian World" and "to deny cultural, historical ties, common roots [Ukraine and Russia] would be great stupidity.

Peskov also noted that Moscow intends to use the means of "soft power" for the so-called "protection" of the "Russian World" in Ukraine.

Dmytro Kuleba has replied Peskov on Twitter as follows:

"Russia has failed to promote the "Russian World" in Ukraine using tanks. Soft force will fail either. "Russian World" is a monotony that contains nobody except Russians," wrote Kuleba and stated that "The Ukrainian World means diversity and freedom to be yourself. Therefore, it is protected by Ukrainian-speaking, Russian-speaking and all other Ukrainians."
