The U.S. and Germany asked the Ukrainian leadership to abstain from starting any active operations in 2014, which could trigger a large-scale land invasion of the Russian Federation, according to a transcript released earlier today of the meeting of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine of February 28, 2014, on the annexation of Crimea, Joinfo.ua reports with reference to UNIAN agency.
“The information provided by our channels, fully confirmed Russia’s readiness for the introduction of troops, which are amassed along our border. Both the Americans and the Germans – all in one voice are asking us not to start any active operation, because, according to their research, Putin will use it to launch a large-scale land invasion,” Valentyn Nalyvaychenko, the then head of the Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) said at the meeting, according to the transcript.
“We must hear our Western partners, as they need time to make decisions,” said Valentyn Nalyvaychenko.
