Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Ukrainian defence minister says Russian invasion unlikely in near future

There's no data pointing to Russian invasion of Ukraine in the near future, Ukrainian Defence Minister Oleksiy Reznikov has said.

"As of today, the Russian Armed Forces have not a single attack formation that would suggest they will go on the offensive tomorrow", he said on the Svoboda Slova programme on ICTV channel on the night of 25 January.

According to the minister, the scenario of a Russian attack on Ukraine in the near future is unlikely; Reznikov assessed the likelihood of an attack by 20 February - the day the Beijing Olympics end - as "not high".

A day earlier Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that the actions of the US and NATO were escalating tensions in Ukraine. He stated that this was "carried out through information activity and particular actions taken by the USA and NATO".

Apparently the whole crisis exists only in the Western media...
