The National Defense and Security Council of Ukraine (RNBO) is on high alert because of possible provocations from Russia for the day before or the very Independence Day of Ukraine. It was stated by the RNBO Secretary Oleksandr Turchynov at the firing ground of the Kyiv armor factory, Joinfo.ua reports.

“It is no secret that our independence irritates Russia very much,  and our Independence Day is a black day for Russia. Therefore, they prepare all the provocations either on the eve of Independence Day, or for Independence Day itself. Therefore, we are in a state of increased readiness in order to be able to repel any provocation,” Turchynov said, speaking about the possibility of aggravation of the situation on the eve of Independence Day.

It should be recalled that earlier we reported that Ukraine would be forced to declare martial law in the event that Russia “uses its power in the Donbas more actively.”
