A. Turchynov said Russia has deployed up to 50,000 military personnel in Ukrainian borderlands: “At their disposal are 300 tanks, over 1,800 armed vehicles, 750 artilleries and rocket firing systems, about 360 warplanes and helicopters”.

He also said the current situation can develop in two directions. “The first possibility is military action and a separatist attack boosted by Russian troops. This will bring about a large-scale continental war. And the second is that Russia will not allow restoring stability in Ukraine and increase terrorist efforts for the confrontation to turn into a long-term military conflict”.

A. Turchynov stressed that he is in favor of lifting the prohibition on recruiting Verkhovna Rada MPs into the army, adding that a bill in this regard has already been presented to the parliament: “I offer full support to this bill, and I hope the Verkhovna Rada would adopt this bill in the near future. In the first place, we will draft MPs who are very concerned about the population of Donbass but in fact works for another country that pursues an aggressive policy against Ukraine”.

Note that, the Verkhovna Rada has ratified the present’s decree on partial mobilization.
