 The potential military operation of the Russian Federation will include a large segment of actions in the Black Sea & mdash; Kuleba

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba stated that Russia's aggressive behavior is a problem not only in Ukraine, because & # 8220; a potential military operation of the Russian Federation will include a large segment of military operations in the Black Sea & # 8221; .

– Therefore, Romania and other Black Sea partners, in our opinion, should be as concerned about the plans of the Russian Federation as Ukraine, and be committed to containing Russia, as we are. This is our common problem, he said.

The Minister stressed that Russia's aggressive behavior is not only a problem for Ukraine.

Kuleba noted that the Russian Federation uses gas as a weapon to aggravate the energy crisis in Europe, and migrants to escalate tensions on the Belarusian border with Lithuania and Poland. He noted that the Kremlin is also exacerbating cyberattacks and disinformation to destabilize the internal situation in Ukraine.

– In a worst-case scenario, Russia could try to blow up the entire post-Cold War security architecture in Europe and redraw borders by force again, as she did in 2008 in Georgia and in 2014, when she occupied the Ukrainian Crimea and started a war in the eastern region of Ukraine, & # 8212; he explained.

The Minister believes that the Russian Federation has just now decided to act in this way, because & # 8220; Germany and France are focused on their internal affairs & # 8221 ;.

In Germany, elections have recently been held, and in France, elections will be held soon. The Russian geopolitical project of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline is at the certification stage.

– Vladimir Putin believes that the West is weak and indecisive, especially now, he can be sure that this is the right moment to shift the balance of power in the region for his own purposes. I believe we must prove the opposite to him, and we can do it, – said Kuleba.

According to him, in order to achieve this goal, Ukraine has offered its partners a comprehensive deterrent package from three levels, consisting of political and economic containment, as well as security containment.

“The stronger Ukraine is, the less likely Russia will risk another large-scale military attack,” he stressed.

Kuleba noted that Ukraine is calling on partners to start a discussion about specific economic restrictions for the Russian Federation and to deepen cooperation with Ukraine in the security and defense sectors.

The head of the Ukrainian military intelligence Kirill Budanov recently announced that at the borders Ukraine has concentrated more than 92 thousand troops of the Russian Federation. He noted that Russia can carry out an attack on our state in late January – early February 2022 in several directions at once.
