Russia may step up military campaign in Ukraine any day now, Speaker Parubii says

Russia may intensify hostilities in Ukraine at any time, so the Ukrainian army must be prepared to repel this aggression.

Verkhovna Rada Speaker Andrii Parubii said at the NATO-Ukraine inter-parliamentary council meeting in Kyiv on Tuesday, Censor.NET reports citing Interfax-Ukraine.

"Russia may step up military campaign in Ukraine any day now," he said.

The speaker noted that Ukraine should be ready to repel the aggression of one of the world's largest armies.

Parubii noted that today's ratio of the Russian army to Ukrainian one "is not in favor of Ukraine, but this motivates us to implement the defense sector reform."

"We have no other option," the speaker of the parliament added.

"Ukraine observes the Minsk agreements despite the fact that the other party continues violating its commitments daily. I emphasize that the Russian military attack our positions every single day and night while our fellows-in-arms are killed on the front line almost each day," Parubii said.
