This was stated by Deputy Chief of General Staff General Hennadii Vorobiov during a meeting with US Air Forces Europe Commander General Frank Gorenc on Monday, Censor.NET informs citing the press service of the General Staff.
"We are forced to fire in return occasionally to save lives and health of the Ukrainian military and civilians but we never open fire on towns and villages even under such circumstances because peaceful Ukrainians may be there. We have full control of the situation at the moment while the forces in the ATO area provide possibility of adequate response to its changes. At the same time, according to the available information, there is a high probability of a full-scale invasion of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation," Vorobiov said.
In the course of the conversation, the Ukrainian side has also thanked the United States for constructive engagement, particularly in the training of various detachments.
