US intelligence claims that Russia will try to annex the occupied territories of Donetsk and Luhansk regions by mid-May. However, even the invaders themselves are not sure that they have come to Ukraine for a long time.

An expert of the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, ex-worker of the Security Service of Ukraine Ivan Stupak told about this.

According to him, all Ukrainian territories temporarily occupied by Russia, we will be able to return only by military means.

We have no other ways. We return Kherson, Zaporozhye. Well, their documents (invaders – Channel 24) are worth absolutely nothing. The world community will declare that it does not recognize these documents and will not even raise the question of the need for any decision of the “new Russian government” to return them.

As Stupak noted, the Russians sent their “representatives” to the territory of the temporarily occupied territories, who in unison say that they came there for a long time and now it is allegedly Russian territory.

“When they say this, it means that they they are not at all sure that they have come here for a long time. This is an attempt to convince the local elite that they will convince local collaborators to cooperate even more for a long time,” the ex-SBU employee said.

However, as Stupak added, despite all the efforts of the Russians, this does not look convincing.
