NSDC secretary on disengagement of forces in Donbas: Enemy unable to gain ground rapidly
Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov says the occupiers in Donbas will not be able to quickly seize the Ukrainian territories following the disengagement of forces at three designated sites in Donbas.
Speaking at a meeting of the National Platform "Dialogue on Peace and Safe Reintegration," before starting the disengagement in the town of Zolote, and the villages of Stanytsia Luhanska and Petrivske, his First Deputy Colonel General Mykhailo Koval "spent almost a month in that territory." Danilov added that Koval studied the situation and developed an action plan to prevent potential dangers.
"Today there is no opportunity for our enemies to rapidly gain ground and do certain other things. I can say that, indeed, we support disengagement, but it should be wise, it should be in our interests, it should guarantee that any negative consequences of this disengagement for Ukraine will be zeroed. If this doesn't happen, there can be no disengagement," Danilov added.
At the same time, he noted that disengagement of forces and weapons was impossible at certain sections of the front line.
