This was stated by NSDC Secretary Andrii Parubii on the Freedom of Speech TV program, Censor.NET reports.
He stressed that Ukraine is preparing for the fact that Russia may resort to direct involvement of their troops in the conflict.
"We understand that there may be a direct involvement of the Russian troops. And we understand that it can happen at any time and at any night," said the Secretary of the NSDC.
However, according to Parubii, "this should not be a deterrent for us to protect our land, our territory and our people from the Russian militants, Russian marauders operating in the East."
