Ukrainian Defense Minister Says Likelihood of Russian Invasion Is Low
Feb. 19, 2022 (EIRNS)—Oleksii Reznikov, the Ukrainian defense minister, still says that the likelihood of a Russian invasion is low, even in the face of the intensifying war hysteria coming from the U.S. and the U.K. “I emphasize once again: Different data and different dates of some events and different scenarios may be announced now. The Ukrainian army has scrutinized all these scenarios and is ready for them. We do not downplay the threat in any way. But we still estimate the probability of large-scale escalation regarding the invasion of Ukraine as low,” he told the unicameral Verkhovna Rada yesterday, reported Ukrinform.
