Russian activity in Crimea and in the East is the preparation to disrupt the celebration of the Day of Independence of Ukraine - Yevhen Marchuk
"Russia can not accept the fact that the 25th anniversary of Ukrainian independence goes well and that world leaders arrive in Kyiv for celebrations", - he added.
Russian activity in the Crimea and in the East speaks of their preparation for the disruption of the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Ukraine's independence. Such an opinion was expressed by the representative of Kyiv in the subgroup on security of the Trilateral contact group on Donbas Yevhen Marchuk on his Facebook page.
"Russia is freely supplying to the Crimea and occupied Donbas territories a large number of heavy military equipment, mostly offensive. Almost all TV channels fairly "interrogate" their guests what does it mean, what to expect from Russia, what scenarios... In my opinion, Russia is simply preparing to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine. Possibly, in the way she did it in 2014, with only a few amendments to the current realities," - he says.
"Even if Russia will not dare to repeat something like August 2014, it created the situation of a high probability of a serious escalation it is creating will inevitably produce highly hypothetical threats to personal safety of distinguished guests and lead to their refusal to travel to Kyiv. I think that a plan has already been developed how to not only ruin, but also to disrupt the celebration of the 25th anniversary of Independence of Ukraine", - said Marchuk.
At that Marchuk noted that Ukrainian security and defense system "already has good experience in countering the actions of the aggressor and is already actively working to ensure the safety of the 25-th anniversary of independence not only in Kyiv ", and the symbolism of the 25th Ukraine Independence anniversary is "a kind of danger, a dangerous example for Russia itself and its current satellites."
