Ukraine must be prepared for Russia's new offensive in Donbas - Turchynov
The Russian troops are doing everything to disrupt the peace process in the east of Ukraine, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine (NSDC) Oleksandr Turchynov said at a briefing before the launch of a small armored artillery boat Gyurza-M, an UNIAN correspondent reported.
"This important event happens at the time when Ukraine is facing very difficult challenges. Unfortunately, I have to report that the peace process has not crossed the line, after which it [the process] becomes irreversible. On the contrary, the Russian occupation forces are doing everything they can to disrupt the peace process and prevent the peaceful resolution of those bloody Moscow-inspired events, which have been taking place in the east of our country," Turchynov said.
Turchynov: Ukrainian state must prepare for the worst-case scenario"Therefore we must be ready that Russia will resume at any moment a major offensive, and that is why strengthening of the combat capabilities of our army, the Armed Forces, the National Guard and other military forces remains our top priority," Turchynov added.
