The biggest problem of the residents of Donbass – psychological, because people can’t live in limbo.
This opinion was expressed by the President of the Center for the study of social prospects of Donbass Sergey Garmash in an interview for the magazine “Krajina”.
The second main problem is economic – work and survival.
“Security problem. During the war, people cannot feel safe, especially those who live in the suburbs. This includes the fact that the state cannot protect its citizens. So they don’t feel safe and the criminal aspect, in the chaos of it, ” – said Garmash.
According to experts, there’s a humanitarian problem.
“In terms of not only the delivery of (humanitarian aid – ed.”Country”), but also of self-awareness in this world,” he said.
In addition, according to the expert, people in the Donbas are disappointed in Ukraine, which does not give them anything.
“Disappointed in Russia. Do not believe that the DNI and the LC can take place. Now they have the identity of “the unfortunate inhabitant of Donbass”, all abandoned and the betrayed. This is a very flawed identity, which often causes people to go on emotional action. This is now a problem for everyone around them. When people do not know who to seek protection. Unrealized paternalism, and there is no subject which it would be possible to implement it. People feel abandoned and can’t wait for security guarantees from anyone, ” – said Garmash.
In addition, he noted that there are “problem children” that grow on false ideological attitudes.
