Intelligence from Ukraine, Great Britain and the United States reported clusters of Russian troops around Ukraine.
As Ukrinform reports, the Minister of Defense of Ukraine Alexey Reznikov declared it during a working trip to the range “Shiroky Lan” in the Nikolaev area, the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reports.
“I had two meetings – with the British Defense Administration Ben Wallace and the United States Lloyd Austin. Where we had serious conversations, we clearly compared the facts obtained by our and their intelligence. We exchanged the same between our demolition agencies. We understand the risk regime, ”Reznikov said.
He got that received very important signals from partners that Ukraine will not be left alone.
“They have already started very serious consultations with other EU and NATO member states. The reaction will be very harsh – the show has already been shown, this is during the Cream visit to Russia of a serious US official“, – the Minister of Defense emphasized.
According to him, this is not about another statement of concern or concern. “Reactions will be much tougher – starting with economic and political sanctions, as well as increasing assistance to Ukraine with equipment and weapons.”
“Representatives of the official Kremlin are constantly seeking their justification, citing alleged violations by Ukraine. They say that we allegedly did not fulfill the Minsk agreements, say that they are not parties to the Minsk agreements at all. Recently, the Russian Foreign Ministry said that the Minsk process is Ukraine’s negotiations with the occupation regimes in Donetsk and Luhansk for the modernization of the Russian Federation. The minutes and memoranda of the Minsk agreements clearly state that the parties to the Tripartite Contact Group are the Russian Federation, Ukraine and the OSCE moderator. Therefore, what is taught in public is absolutely not aimed at the civilized world, “Reznikov stressed, noting that all of them are civilized, the world knows who the aggressor is.
noted that the Russian authorities present the information in a favorable interpretation for the domestic audience in order to justify the potential escalation.
“They are afraid that their own society will not accept aggression and war. If we consider the sociological research that was conducted in the spring by one of the Russian research centers – the number one for their population – the fear of war, “- summed up Reznikov.
As Ukrinform reported, official Washington remains a serious concern on the “unusual activity” of Russian troops on the border with Ukraine and continues to work with allies and partners on this issue.
