Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Ruslan Khomchak denied the statements spread by Russia about allegedly "Ukraine's preparation for an attack on Donbas." This was reported by the press service of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"Messages spread by Russia about allegedly "Ukraine's preparation for an attack on Donbas" are untrue and have signs of a targeted disinformation campaign aimed at discrediting Ukraine in the international arena, sowing panic among the population of temporarily occupied territories and changing the information agenda for promoting the Kremlin's geostrategic interests," he said.

At the same time, according to Khomchak, the liberation of the temporarily occupied territories by force will inevitably lead to the death of a large number of civilians and losses among the military, which is unacceptable for Ukraine.

At the same time, he said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are ready for an adequate response both in case of an escalation of the conflict in the area of the Joint Forces Operation (JFO), and in case of a complication of the military-political and military-strategic situation around Ukraine.

Meanwhile, the Foreign Ministry of Russia stated that Ukraine’s accession to NATO membership would lead to a large-scale in Donbas. It also might become a threat to the Ukrainian nationhood as RIA News reported citing the ministry’s spokesperson Maria Zakharova.

Russia drew attention to the statement of Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky that accession to NATO might stop conflict in Donbas.
