‘Having stated that Russia’s not involved in the military conflict in Ukraine, Vladimir Putin once again showed that the Kremlin’s policy is based on cynical lies and trickery’, said Ukraine’s Secretary of the National Defense and Security Council. He thus commented on Putin’s words about the ‘internal conflict in Ukraine’, which he said at the most recent meeting with Russian ambassadors.
According to Olexandr Turchynov, the proof of Russian aggression can be found at the official website of Russian presidential administration. The Ukrainian official remembered that last month, Putin signed decrees to promote top-rank Russian officers for military operations and crimes that they designed and commanded in Donbas.
‘These officers command two army corpses, the regular and inseparable units of Russia’s Armed Forces, which are currently deployed in Donbas. These units come under command of the Southern military district of the Russian Federation’, Turchynov stressed.
