In Russia, they made an alarming prediction about the actions of Putin's troops in Ukraine

In Russia, they made an alarming prediction about the actions of Putin's troops in Ukraine

Ukraine should seriously prepare itself for countering Russia because of the Kremlin's preparations for a series of provocations.

This opinion was expressed in the column on "Apostrophe" by the Russian oppositionist Konstantin Borovyi.

"I think that today there are several mobilization plans in the Kremlin, one of which, of course, concerns Ukraine, because the troops are located on the western borders of Russia, in Belarus." It is worthwhile to expect provocations, "Borovy said.

In his view, Ukraine needs to look for opportunities to confront Russian aggression.

"I have a feeling that there is no such willingness in Ukraine at the moment, as the Kremlin does, it is not yet clear, but it is clear from many indirect signs that such provocations are planned." I do not know whether a tank offensive against Kyiv would be carried out, as Venediktov put it , but small provocations that will create tension on the border in Ukraine are almost guaranteed, "- says the politician.

According to Borovoy, such events are discussed at the level of the Kremlin's trustees, as well as at expert and propaganda levels.

"The theme of Ukraine once again became, if not leading, very prominent on Russian television, in the propaganda campaign," the politician said.

At the same time, he believes that the observed infiltration of tensions may indicate that the Kremlin can move from virtual to real military action.
