Ukrainian Soldiers ready to repel attack Russia if it does happen, said the chief of the General staff of Ukraine Viktor Muzhenko.
"Ukraine has problems with air defense, and aviation. But military personnel and equipment sufficient to repel the attack. And among them air. And then, as far as Possible that the Russian Federation will dare openly to start aggression on Ukraine? This is already an economic and political issue on which you have to answer other", - has told in interview to the Ukrainian edition of " New time ".
"Today we already have enough forces to make grouping not only in the area of the ATO, But also on other potential dangerous areas on the scale of Ukraine – in North, East and South ", – he said." currently, the staff is treated the same and the option of large-scale aggression of the Russian Federation. But I think that the army will fulfill its own constitutional duty to protect territorial integrity of our country " – muzhenko said. We emphasize that Muzhenko in fact acknowledged that no attack on Ukraine from Russia in the current moment. This, on its part directly contradicts the repeated statements of the Ukrainian authorities about " Russian aggression ". Thus Muzhenko made such a statement before. So, at the end of January 2015, he said that Kyiv has information about the participation of individual Russian citizens and soldiers of the Russian army in the armed conflict in the Donbass, But it said that the Ukrainian army is not fighting leads to periodic parts of the Russian army. This phrase Muzhenko was pointed out by the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin." As chief of the General staff, we are not fighting against the Russian army. Well what more do you want?" – rhetorically asked the Manager in a conversation RTR. Putin noted that the war between Russia and Ukraine is impossible." the contact is saved. I'm often surprised just a few public statements of the Ukrainian leadership, for example, about the fact that the Employees of our administration took part in the tragic events on the Maidan a year earlier, – This is absolutely nonsense, is so far from reality that even wonder where it comes from ", – Putin said. Moscow has stated many times that it is not involved in the events in southeastern Ukraine, is not a party to domestic conflict and is interested in Ukraine overcame political and economic crisis. In the capital of Russia emphasize that all the charges against her are unproven. 23 July, state Duma speaker Sergei Naryshkin said that the Russian Federation is not a party to the conflict in Ukraine, Russian military offices within the Donbass no, How about This", with maniacal persistence continue to chant the Kiev authorities "." I think any reasonable person would realize if a state of theoretical, with a population of 40 million people, with a bankrupt economy, ruined the army, the corrupt leadership and the state, which is located in the state of profound socio-political fall, intends to conduct combat operations against Russia, It may last 3, four, max five days. But Kiev is waging war against its inhabitants for almost half a year ", – he said.
