Deployment of Russian "Peacekeepers" to Ukraine Will Be Regarded as Direct Aggression, the Presidential Administration Says

Deploying Russian "peacekeepers" to the territory of Ukraine will be considered as a direct aggression.

This was stated by First Deputy Head of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine Yurii Zubko at a briefing after the meeting of President Petro Poroshenko with volunteers who help in the soldiers who take part in the ATO, Censor NET informs with reference UNIAN.

"The so-called peacekeeping mission stands near the Ukrainian border for more than five months. Therefore, it will be considered a direct attack," Zubko answered the question about the reports that Russia intends to deploy its "peacekeepers" to eastern Ukraine . He also added: "I believe that today the international community is not going to support deployment of the peacekeeping forces from the Russian side."
