Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba named the main reasons that are holding back the Russian Federation from attacking Ukraine. This is reported by Zeit.

“This kind of containment package consists of three elements. The first is a clear political message that is already sounding. The second is a set of sanctions or restrictive measures. Russia knows that the West is preparing sanctions, and Moscow will think twice if it is ready to pay such a price. The third is military support," says the minister.

Kuleba noted that the armament of Ukraine does not fuel the conflict. After all, Russia wants Ukraine to remain weak. Therefore, all those who reject cooperation with the Ukrainian side in the military and defense spheres strengthen the position of Russia.

Now, according to the minister, some European countries have concluded agreements with Ukraine on the supply of military equipment.

During last month the Western media regularly publish information about the concentration of Russian troops near the Ukrainian border.

In particular, Politico published satellite images of the movement of Russian troops made by the American space technology company Maxar Technologies, headquartered in Colorado. The image allegedly confirmed information that Russia is again concentrating troops and military equipment on the border with Ukraine.

Later, United States intelligence revealed Russia's plans for a possible military invasion of Ukraine, which could occur in early 2022. We are talking about several scenarios: from the annexed Crimea, across the border from Russia and through Belarus.

Russia, on its own, denies information about a possible attack on Ukraine. According to press secretary of Russian President Dmitry Peskov, Russia poses no threat to anyone.

At the same time, the EU representative for foreign affairs and security policy Josep Borrell warned that in the event of an aggravation of the situation on the borders of Ukraine, the EU would not be able to support Kyiv with troops.

A few days ago, analysts from the Russian Conflict Intelligence Team confirmed that Russia continues to transport military equipment to the border with Ukraine.
