Putin’s red lines end in Russia’s territory, – Kuleba
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister claims that Kyiv will decide on its own how to act in the interests of the Ukrainian people
Ukraine’s Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba commented on the recent opinion of Russian president Vladimir Putin; the Russian leader earlier claimed that NATO’s military infrastructure deployment in Ukraine would cross Russia’s red lines.
“Putin’s red lines scale down to the territory of the Russian Federation. On our side of Russian-Ukrainian border, we will decide on our own how to act in the interests of the Ukrainian nation and the security of Ukraine and Europe”, Kuleba wrote on his Twitter.
Earlier, Russian leader Vladimir Putin believes that the development of NATO infrastructure in Ukraine would mean crossing Moscow’s red lines. Dmitriy Peskov, Putin’s press secretary said so as quoted by TASS.
“The topic of potential expansion of NATO military infrastructure on the territory of Ukraine has been repeatedly mentioned by President Putin. President Putin said it was beyond the same red lines that he had repeatedly said about before”, reads the message.
Apart from that, Peskov claimed that the Kremlin could take action in return, in order “to maintain the security of two states”, namely Russia and Belarus.
