"We receive information": Zelenskyi revealed in which countries Putin could ignite a war
Russia is stirring up the situation in the Balkans "so that one country would fight another," Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said. One of the Kremlin's goals is to divide the West's attention and the assistance it provides to states.
The head of state said this during an interview with African media. A recording of Zelenskyi's conversation with journalists was published on the YouTube channel of the President's Office.
The guarantor noted, 'Russia, as you can see, is engaged in various 'explosions.' Today, everyone is talking about the Middle East. There, Russia is acting together with its ally Iran.
'But pay attention to the Balkans. Believe me, we are getting information! Russia has a long plan. The Middle East. The second distraction will be the Balkans. At least, if the countries of the world, the partners, do nothing now, there will be another such 'explosion,' and again, not a new story. There is a crisis in their relations, and it has been for a long time. That is why Russia will invest in making sure that one country in the Balkans is at war with another,' the president said.
He explained that the Kremlin is interested in other states having to send aid to several points at once, not just one.
Zelenskyi drew attention to the fact that Russians are beginning to undermine the situation in Moldova. 'Believe me, it's the same,' the guarantor said. In this country, Russia wants to show that 'something was wrong during the elections' to demolish the pro-European current government.
Russia is also interfering in Africa with the help of the private military company Wagner. The Head of State said that Wagner's men are training in Belarus 'specifically for the African continent.
As OBOZ.UA previously reported, during the same press conference, Zelenskyi said that freezing the military conflict with Russia would be a manifestation of Ukraine's weak position. As a result of this decision, Ukrainians will receive a temporary truce and relative peace, but they must be prepared for their children and grandchildren to fight."
