Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba showed US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken, who visited Kiev, a map with the “historical and ethnographic borders” of Ukraine. At the same time, a number of Russian territories were included in it.
According to Channel 24 , the map included the Kuban, Taganrog, and some areas of the Bryansk region.
In addition, the so-called “Eastern Slobozhanshchina” was marked on the map – the territories of the Kursk, Voronezh and Belgorod regions. Kiev believes that in these regions Russia carried out the “assimilation” of Ukrainians.
However, not only Russian lands got on the map of “historical” Ukraine. It also included the Romanian Southern Bukovina, the Belarusian Polesie, part of the territories of Poland, from which the Ukrainian population was taken out in 1944-1946.
Blinken arrived in the capital of Ukraine last Wednesday, January 19. In addition to Kuleba, he met with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.
