In this regard, the head of Ukrainian diplomatic mission called on the Federal government of Germany to take a tougher stance on Russia on the issue of the annexation of the Crimea.”
The topic supposedly impending large-scale offensive in Ukraine creatively developed in the paper, the Secretary of the Council for national security and defense under the President of Ukraine Alexander Turchinov.
“Full-scale military aggression of Russia against Ukraine, according to Turchynov, could develop in two main scenarios.
