Russia excludes the possibility of a war with Ukraine. The Kremlin assured that it would not accept this scenario. This was announced by the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, RIA Novosti reported.
"Of course, no one is going to move towards war, and no one at all perceives any possibility of such a war," he said.
In addition, he stressed that Moscow will not be indifferent to the fate of the Russian-speaking population in Donbas.
On April 7, National Security and Defense Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov said that whether there will be an aggravation in Donbas depends only on Russian President Vladimir Putin. At the same time, commenting on the statement of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak about the pulling of troops by Russia to the borders of Ukraine, Danilov said that the Russian Federation did not withdraw its troops from the borders.
Also on April 8, head of the Presidential Administration of Russia Dmytro Kozak accused Ukraine of imitating a military threat in Donbas. Kozak also believes that the partners in the Normandy format are delaying the negotiation process.
