If Russian mercenaries deny the peace plan in Donbas offered by Ukraine's delegation in Minsk group, Ukrainian military will switch to more active resistance to Russian aggression. Leonid Kravchuk, the Head of the Ukrainian delegation and the first president of this country said so in a recent commentary, as quoted by Ukrinform.

"We know that the troops are brought in, we know that training and exercises are taking place. But the Ukrainian army is not the same it was five years ago - we are ready to stand our ground. We can't help but see the threats when they're there. And we will respond to them adequately - but without provoking any actions that are dangerous for lives of people", Kravchuk said.
