“Regime of silence” in Donbas won't be long

I am convinced that this "regime of silence" in eastern Ukraine would not last long. Now we see those large-scale maneuvers, which take place on the territory of the Russian Federation in the Southern Military District. It is an ultimatum to Ukraine: if you do not want to accept our terms and conditions of the ceasefire, it will end with full-scale aggression.
In terms of the current negotiations, Putin would not reach what he wants. I am referring to actual federalization of so-called “Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics” and their right of veto on foreign policy decisions. It means that Ukraine would be unable to enter NATO and the European Union.
President Poroshenko would have enough power not to agree. Simply, he does not have enough votes in Parliament to maintain these agreements. If someone initiates these bills, he will be politically dead in the nearest future.
We need to create a strong protective mechanism, at least 3-4 teams of Missile Forces. We have excellent developments. Our Sapsan missile system is actually a ballistic missile without a nuclear charge. Our allies, Ukraine’s Armed Forces, marched on Khreschatyk Street in Kyiv. We need to create tactical aviation brigade, which will be armed with combat drones.
Currently, I am in the Donetsk region. And I can tell about the ceasefire in this region. But the military do not trust it, so there unfold their flanks and rear.
