“At least a dozen more names from the highest echelons of power are already ready today at the first opportunity to go over to the side of Russia and liberated Ukraine,” Kiva wrote on Telegram.

According to him, in the future, the number of Ukrainian officials and legislators openly supporting Russia will only increase.

Earlier, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said that the United States does not change its approach to the situation around Ukraine, Washington wants to provide "the strongest position" for Kyiv in negotiations with Moscow.

The Kremlin noted that Western countries are betting on the continuation of the conflict in Ukraine, not allowing Kyiv to think about peace.
