Russia is not going to send troops in Ukraine
During today’s press conference in Moscow the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin, answering the question if the situation in the Crimea and Ukraine was similar to South Ossetia and Abkhazia in 2008 and if the brining of the troops to the peninsula could be expected, informed that Russia had no reasons to bring troops to the Crimea.
“It is incorrect to compare the Crimea with South Ossetia and Abkhazia. Nothing like that is going on in the Crimea. There was a conflict in South Ossetia and Abkhazia; there were the peacemaking forces there, including Russian military men. Our reaction was connected not only with the protection of our citizens but also with the murders of our military men. This is the sense of those events. There is nothing like that in the Crimea, and I hope nothing like that will happen,” the President told.
Putin also stressed that Russia was not going to bring the troops in any of the regions of Ukraine.
Let us remind that earlier the mass media informed that the Ukrainian party Svoboda spread the information regarding the fact that there was a threat of bringing of the Russian forces in Ukraine, and about the fact the Black Sea Fleet would be the first to attack the Ukrainian territories. Moreover, according to the information of Svoboda the forces, ready to side with the Russians, are forming in the Crimea.
