According to him, the situation in the Middle East and the situation in Ukraine are completely different things.
Volker does not think that the Kremlin prepares a new attack in Donbas soon.
“Russians have been keeping the conflict in the East of Ukraine for four years – with tanks, mortar launchers, infantry forces, radio-electronic weapons – with everything one can imagine. Therefore, it’s a matter of a constant rotation of equipment and people. I do not think that the actions on the Russian-Ukrainian border differ from those we have been observing over the past three and a half years,” he said.
As reported, the armed forces of the United States, Britain and France on April 14 inflicted air strikes on a number of facilities in Syria related to the development and use of chemical weapons. The media report about at least six victims.
Airstrikes became the response to the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian Douma, killing 70 people. The West blamed Bashar Assad, as well as Russia.
A number of countries have already supported the actions of the US and its allies. In turn, Russia stated that it convenes an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council.
