The threat of Russian aggression is possible from the North, West, and the South, said the head of the General staff.
The Chief of the General Staff Viktor Muzhenko declared that the threat of Russian aggression is possible everywhere where there are Russian troops, reports Ukrinform.
“The threat to Ukraine comes from everywhere where there are Russian troops. It is not only from the East. We can expect a blow from the Russian groupings from the North, West, South, and from Crimea, where the Russian Federation concentrated significant offensive capabilities,” said Muzhenko.
