According to him, the grouping of troops of the Russian Federation, Ukrainian intelligence estimates 50 – 60 thousand people, distributed between Transnistria and Crimea, Belarus, the Donetsk and Lugansk regions.
“Is that all there is on the border of Ukraine, almost on its perimeter,” – said the military expert.
“When the enemy starts to accumulate assault force and its population will exceed 250 thousand on the border of Ukraine and Russia in only one direction, then it is necessary to think about the fact that, perhaps, is preparing some version of invasion of the Ukraine in one direction,” – said Zhdanov.
The expert also stressed that, despite this, Ukraine should continue to engage in the development of the armed forces. “If you want peace, prepare for war”, – said Zhdanov.
