Statements by the President of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, about the threat of a “full-scale war” with Russia are a provocation, an intentional act of intimidating the country’s population, and an attempt to convince the West of the non-existent aggressive plans of Moscow, says member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Sergey Zheleznyak.
Poroshenko said earlier in an interview with Ukrainian television about the threat of a “full-scale war” with Russia after the incident in the Kerch Strait, as a result of which Ukrainian naval ships violated the border of the Russian Federation and were detained. Poroshenko’s statement was made shortly after the imposition of martial law in certain regions of the country for a period of 30 days.
Poroshenko’s statement that Ukraine is threatened with a “full-scale war” with Russia is not only a provocation against our country, but also a deliberate act of intimidating its own population, as well as an attempt to convince the West of Russia’s non-existent aggressive plans. Poroshenko’s planned full-scale anti-Russian campaign a desperate attempt to preserve their power, as well as to fulfill another Western Russophobic order, ”Zheleznyk quotes his press service.
The politician believes that Kiev, through its provocations and the imposition of martial law, “opened the Pandora’s box”.
“For all the consequences of the aggravation of the situation in Ukraine, pogroms, attacks on Russian citizens and diplomatic missions will be primarily responsible for the Kiev authorities, as well as the Western sponsors of the military junta Poroshenko,” he stressed.
