“Neither tanks nor soft power will promote the ‘Russian world’ to Ukraine,” - response of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs to Peskov
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."
