As reported by Censor.NET, Advisor to the Minister of Internal Affairs Zorian Shkiriak said on air of Espreso.TV on Tuesday, June 21.
"If I'm not mistaken, there are more than 80,000 soldiers of the Russian army at Ukraine's eastern borders," Shkiriak said.
He added that the escalation of the occupants' hostile activities, which began six weeks ago, evidenced possible preparation of another act of aggression on the part of Russia.
Shkiriak said that he had visited all the hot spots at the Donetsk and Mariupol sections of the front line over the past two weeks, and the hostilities were underway there all the time.
