 Threat of a Russian Invasion Exists. Ukrainian Army is Ready to Give an Adequate Rebuff

The Ukrainian armed forces are ready to repulse the Russian army in case of an open armed invasion.

Representative of the information analytical center of the National Security and Defense Council Andrii Lysenko said on Wednesday commenting on the growing threat of direct invasion of Russia into Ukraine, Ukrainian Pravda reports.

"There is the threat of invasion in theory. All the possible directions of the offensive are being analyzed," he said without providing more details because this information is classified.
