Russia is not going to attack anyone, the Kremlin said

Earlier, the head of the main intelligence department of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, Kirill Budanov, in an & nbsp; interview with the Military Times, said that & nbsp; Moscow was allegedly preparing for an & nbsp; attack on & nbsp; Ukraine. In & nbsp; in turn, the Bloomberg agency with & nbsp; citing & nbsp; sources reported that & nbsp; US intelligence believes that & nbsp; Russia allegedly plans an invasion from & nbsp; three directions & nbsp; & mdash; from & nbsp; the territory of Crimea, from the mainland border and & nbsp; through & nbsp; Belarus. They also wrote that & nbsp; the country allegedly called for “ tens of thousands '' reservists on a & nbsp; & nbsp; unprecedented scale for & nbsp; post-Soviet times. And & nbsp; is completely wrong to say the opposite. And & nbsp; it is completely wrong to associate any movements of the Russian Armed Forces across the & nbsp; territory of our country with & nbsp; similar plans. This is not & nbsp; so & raquo;, & nbsp; & mdash; Peskov told reporters.

He & nbsp; noted that & nbsp; American and & nbsp; Ukrainian media claim that & nbsp; the country is preparing to attack & nbsp; Ukraine, and & nbsp; the Russian side claims that & nbsp; Kiev is planning aggressive actions against Donbass, against the self-proclaimed republics & nbsp; & mdash; LPR and & nbsp; DNR, & ldquo; and & nbsp; this & ldquo; nuance that needs to be understood and & nbsp; to interpret it correctly & rdquo; & raquo ;.

The spokesman added that the best guarantee of security in the situation with the Ukrainian conflict is the observance of the Minsk agreements. < p>He called the lack of progress in & nbsp; their & nbsp; implementation a significant trigger, which leads to an increase in the level of tension in the whole & nbsp; Europe.

The Kremlin spokesman noted that & nbsp; sending to & nbsp; Kiev military advisers and & nbsp; weapons from & nbsp; ; Western countries are also aggravating the situation.

“ We are & nbsp; deeply concerned about the provocative actions by & nbsp; the Ukrainian armed forces on the & nbsp; line of contact and & nbsp; preparation for & nbsp; a possible military solution, an attempt to forcefully resolve the problem of Donbass & nbsp;, & nbsp; ; & mdash; Peskov concluded.

He & nbsp; recalled that & nbsp; the self-proclaimed republics have never & nbsp; provoked the situation.

Kiev and & nbsp; Western states in & nbsp; have recently expressed concern about & nbsp; in connection with & nbsp; ; ostensibly increasing 'aggressive actions' from the & nbsp; side of Russia at & nbsp; the borders of Ukraine. For & nbsp; for its part, & nbsp; Moscow declares that & nbsp; the country is moving troops within its territory and & nbsp; at & nbsp; its discretion, and & nbsp; the country did not & nbsp; threaten anyone and & nbsp; does not & nbsp; threaten.
