Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said the risk of a new large-scale Russian invasion has increased over the past month as RBK-Ukraine reported.

“We can say that this year the level of threat has increased significantly. Now over the last month - the threat level has increased, but it has not crossed the red line. You know, there is a red line on the thermometer at 37 degrees. We have come close to this red line in the last month, but we have not crossed it yet. And now all efforts are still directed precisely at preventing the risk of military escalation on the part of Russia,” Kuleba said.
