According to him, a Russian invasion is a very real possibility Ukraine is bracing for.
As we reported earlier, Volodymyr Zelensky has requested the talks with President of Russia Volodymyr Putin to discuss the escalation of the conflict in Donbas. However, he did not receive an answer as Reuters stated citing Zelensky’s Spokesperson Yulia Mendel.
“The administration of the president, of course, has the request to talk with Vladimir Putin. We have not received an answer yet and we hope that it is not the refusal from a dialogue,” Mendel said.
She also stated that Russia has concentrated over 40,000 military men at the eastern border with Ukraine and over 40,000 soldiers in Crimea.
Official representative of Kremlin Dmitriy Peskov stated that he has not seen such a request on talks recently and he did not know that it was filed recently.
