JFO Commander: Ukraine's army sees no direct threat of Russian invasion yet
Commander of the Ukrainian Joint Forces Operation (JFO) Serhiy Nayev says there is no direct threat of the Russian invasion yet, however, the Ukrainian army is preparing for any scenario.
Speaking during a Svoboda Slova [Freedom of Speech] TV panel show, he said the Ukrainian military had reinforced all types of intelligence to obtain information on the status and nature of the Russian armed forces' actions, according to the RBC Ukraine media outlet.
"All state intelligence agencies, as well as the leadership of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, including the commander in chief, the chief of the General Staff and the defense minister are taking part. We receive daily information about the Russian armed forces, their presence, accumulation, and increase in the number," he said.
Nayev stressed the Ukrainian Armed Forces were working out plans to respond to all military threats from Russia, including in the Crimean direction.
In addition, he said the commander of the Naval Forces of Ukraine, who had announced Russia's possible military invasion from Crimea, "exaggerated and does not have full information."
As UNIAN reported earlier, Ukraine's Navy Commander Oleksiy Neizhpapa said the threat of full-scale Russian aggression against Ukraine had not disappeared.
