The Kremlin has accused the Armed Forces of Ukraine of multiple provocations on the line of contact in Donbas. This statement was made by the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitriy Peskov during an online conference, RIA Novosti reported.
"Unfortunately, the reality is very frightening on the line of contact, provocations by the Armed Forces of Ukraine are taking place, they are not single, but multiple," Peskov said.
When asked about the buildup of Russian troops near the border with Ukraine, the spokesperson of the Russian President Dmitriy Peskov said that the Russian Federation is moving troops in its territory as it prefers and “that should not worry anyone, as it does not represent a threat to anyone.”
"I just answered the question about the statements made in Kyiv, about the need to involve NATO troops, and so on. It seems to me that such statements speak for themselves," the press secretary of the Russian President added.
Meanwhile, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, commenting on the aggravation of the situation in Donbas, assured the society that the Ukrainian army would be able to repel anyone.
"Preserving a complete ceasefire is a guarantee of continuing difficult yet much-needed negotiations in the Minsk and Normandy formats. I would like to emphasize once again that our army is able to repel anyone. And this strengthens our position to resolve the situation through the diplomatic path chosen by Ukraine for the reintegration of the temporarily occupied territories and the return of our people," Zelensky stressed.
