Ukraine should be ready to give up Kharkov, Dnepropetrovsk, Donbass and other territories transferred to it in the Soviet time, if it recognizes the “occupation” period of being in the USSR. About this RIA Novosti said the Chairman of the Committee of the State Duma for the CIS Affairs, Eurasian integration and relations with compatriots Leonid Kalashnikov.
“If taken seriously, it will be necessary to return half of Ukraine in Russia today, and not only Crimea, because and Kharkiv, and Dnipropetrovsk and Donbass prior to the creation of the Soviet Union were not part of Ukraine”,-said Leonid Kalashnikov.
Director of the Ukrainian Institute of national memory of Vladimir Vyatrovych in Friday said that Kyiv needed to work for the recognition of Ukraine’s stay in the USSR “Bolshevik and Communist occupation”.
After the revolution of 1917 was formed the Ukrainian Soviet socialist Republic with its capital in Kharkiv. The new Republic included the territory, belonging in the Russian Empire not only to Ukraine but also to the Donbass and the Novorossiya (new Russia), Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson, Nikolaev, Odessa, Dnepropetrovsk, Kirovograd. In the 1939-1940s into the republic was included East Galicia, Northern Bukovina entered, as well as Southern Bessarabia. In 1945 — Transcarpathia. Finally, in 1954 Crimea was attached to Ukraine.
