The country-aggressor Russia can launch an attack on Ukraine not only from the occupied territory of Donbass. This was stated by Secretary of national security Council and defense Oleksandr Turchynov in an interview to UNIAN.
He stressed that no country in Europe has such a border with Russia like Ukraine. “And, of course, the offensive can be not only from the East, from the occupied territory of Donbass. It may start from the North and from the South, and from the occupied Crimea… We have to be ready to resist the Russian attack from any direction, and, more likely, from several. We just have to be ready for it. Panic, fear, and fuss,” said Secretary of the NSDC.
Turchinov explained that Ukrainians should clearly be aware of what to protect yourself be yourself. “Quietly, with understanding to treat and prepare. In the economy and in politics should be a clear priority – the priority of the protection and defense of our country. It should be understood and in Parliament. To measure ratings and empty promises, not to compete, someone who has more to sling mud, but to pay attention to the defense and security of Ukraine. Everything else – from the evil one”, – said Turchinov.
