April 11th, Russian Presidential Press Secretary Peskov said in an interview with the media that the current situation in the Donbas region in eastern Ukraine is very dangerous and civil war is ready to break out. At the same time, he pointed out that Russia will not go to war with Ukraine and will not accept any possibility of war.
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Peskov: Adjacent to us is a country that is likely to break out at any time. We do not rule out the possibility that the leaders of this country want to solve the domestic problem by force again, which is certainly dangerous for us. Overall, the conflict (in the Donbas region) has not eased and the situation is very tense. Similar provocations may ignite the flames of the civil war and the internal conflict in Ukraine overnight, so we have been expressing concern.
In addition, regarding the news that Western media are concerned about Russia’s domestic troop transfer, Peskov said that Russia’s military transfer in its own country should not cause concern to other countries. Russia poses no threat to any country and will not go to war with Ukraine.
Press Secretary of the President of Russia Peskov: Of course, no one wants to go to war, and no one can accept any possibility of such a war. Russia has never participated in the conflict in the Donbas region, but Russia’s lives for Russians living in southeastern Ukraine, or rather, Russian-speaking people there. Fortune will not be indifferent.
