In the case of a missile attack Russia will not be able to deny the fact of incitement to armed conflict in Ukraine, which will be a signal to the world community. People’s Deputy, member of the Parliamentary Committee on National Security and Defense Taras Pastuh expressed such an opinion, the 112 Ukraine TV channel reports.
"Is the missile attack of Russia on our territory possible? We have to expect anything. But after such strike Russia will not be able to hide behind the separatists or some illegal groups. Obviously, such launches must be carried out already from the territory of Russia, or possibly with controlled territory, like the Crimea. This is a clear signal to the world that Russia is a side that provokes the conflict. I think the world should eventually understand the threat, and assistance to Ukraine will be much more important", he said.
Pastuh added that now Ukraine is building defenses against possible further aggression from the Russian Federation.
"We must be prepared for threats. Such military drills are quite logical, aimed at the preparation of our armed forces, and showing the enemy that we strengthen our defenses", he said.
