After the Ukrainian Armed Forces strike on Donbass, Ukraine may lose Kiev. After all, armed provocations against Donetsk and Lugansk can lead to a full-scale Russian-Ukrainian war.
This assumption was made on the air of the Ukrainian TV channel NewsOne by the deputy of the Verkhovna Rada from the faction "Opposition Platform - For Life" (HLE) Oleg Voloshin.
He considers, that the offensive operation of the Ukrainian Armed Forces against Donetsk and Lugansk is capable of escalating into an armed clash with the regular Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
Voloshin suggested, that in response to Kiev's aggression against Donbass, Moscow is capable of landing troops on the Black Sea coast near Odessa and even launching an offensive against Kiev. And since the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have a powerful grouping near the Ukrainian borders, then the scenario described by the deputy may begin to be implemented as early as late summer or early autumn.
And in this case, Voloshin believes, no doubt about the outcome of the campaign: Russia will inflict a quick and decisive defeat on the Armed Forces of Ukraine, she has enough resources for this.
On the other hand, according to the deputy, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy should not stir up panic over likely “Russian aggression.
Put on old worn-out boots of Turchinov and talk about, that tomorrow Russian tanks will enter Kiev - this is, of course, hardly a serious approach for the president of Ukraine.
– Voloshin believes.
Earlier, Moscow has repeatedly stated, that the only way to peacefully resolve the conflict in Donbass is the consistent implementation of the Minsk agreements.
