Potential Russia could go to an open military invasion of Ukraine after its troops every year, conduct exercises along the Ukrainian border, including on the territory of Belarus, but it may lead to the head of the Kremlin Vladimir Putin’s big problems.

In an interview with “Apostrophe” said Deputy Secretary of Council of national security and defense Council (NSDC) Sergey Krivonos.

According to him, Russia is developing various options of aggression against Ukraine – missile strikes to repeat the Yugoslav variant, and then to send troops; to send troops, but just a precision missile strikes to bring Ukraine to its knees.

“They (the Russians – “Apostrophe”) to strengthen its troops in Crimea, creating organizational structure, allowing in the shortest terms to make the deployment of troops to strike from the Crimea. The Chernihiv and Sumy region (Kiev direction – “Apostrophe”), they might not even be a problem…” – said Krivonos.

He added that Russia’s military potential is very large, therefore the main task for Ukraine is the organization of territorial defense. The Kremlin can commit aggression, but then it is extremely difficult to keep everything under control.

“For the Kremlin it is very important – as soon as possible to put here (in Ukraine – “Apostrophe”) a puppet government that would dance to their tune. They will be even easier to achieve success if they advance will make sure that we hated each other” – summed up the Deputy Secretary of the NSDC.
