Ukraine also said that the Russian side put pressure and set limits for military inspektorov.
Russia pursues a hidden militarization on the border with Ukraine, said the speaker of the defense Ministry ATO Col. at the briefing.
In the period from 16 to 19 January, Ukraine conducted a military inspection in Russia. Area inspections amounted to about 16 thousand square kilometers. According to its results Ukraine alleged violations by Russia of the Vienna document 2011 on confidence-building measures and security.
Motuzyanik said that the Russian side put pressure and set limits for inspectors.
“In particular, at the stage of discussion of the plan of the inspection, Russia announced that it would limit the area for the helicopter overflight at a depth of 25 km along the border with Ukraine over military airfields and ranges. Subsequently, the flight was actually cancelled, supposedly due to bad weather, so the inspection was only carried out for road transport”, – he said.
“Thus, Russia has demonstrated that she has something to hide – namely, the forced militarization of the border with Ukraine regions and to actively promote the weapons and the leadership of the illegal armed forces in the Donbas,” said Matusevich.
