‘We conduct military drills every day and every night, on the ground and in the air, but that doesn’t mean were going to attack someone. Our task is to prepare the military so that they can adequately response to the enemy aggression’, Colonel Andriy Lysenko said.   

According to him, with such statements, Russia is trying to conceal its own failures to breach the Ukrainian defenses in Donbas. ‘They say there are volunteer battalions and the Special Forces in Donbas, preparing for an offensive.  All these statements are only supposed to confuse people. They (Russia) have been trying to provoke our servicemen for at least local offensive actions’, Lysenko stressed.
