This was stated by the Speaker during the parliamentary hearings on the topic "The Defense of Ukraine in the XXI Century: Challenges, Threats and Ways to Overcome them," Censor.NET reports citing UNIAN.
"The war is being waged against Ukraine in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions," Turchynov said.
According to him, it is not a secret that at the border of Ukraine "the Russian Armed Forces are continuing to amass and they are ready to invade our territory."
"And all the assurances of President Putin gave the international community are unfortunately lies," Turchinov noted.
According to him, there are attempts to destabilize the situation in many areas of the south and east of Ukraine: in Kharkiv, Odesa, Dnipropetrovsk, Zaporizhia, Kherson, Mykolaiv. The Chairman of the Rada thanked all those who are controlling the situation and blocking "the dissemination of the terrorist threat in our country."
