UPD: 01/26/2015 Ukraine has no NATO troops. International forces that are present on the Ukrainian land - Russian, - Stoltenberg
The statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin that the Ukrainian army is a "NATO legion" is nonsense.
This was stated by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg during a press conference in Brussels after an emergency meeting of the Ukraine-NATO Commission, reports Tsenzor.NET with reference to the Ukrainian truth.
"This is nonsense. There is no NATO legion in Ukraine. The international forces that are present on Ukrainian soil are Russian," he noted.
According to him, Russia also continues to support the separatists with weapons. “We are talking about the heavy weapons of many types,” Stoltenberg stressed.
As the Secretary General noted, during the last weeks Russia has transferred hundreds of modern equipment, including rocket systems, heavy artillery, tanks and armored vehicles to separatists in the east of Ukraine. “We urge Russia to stop supporting separatists, immediately stop destabilizing Ukraine and respect its international obligations,” he stressed.
“We urge all parties to continue efforts to achieve a peaceful solution in full compliance with the Minsk agreements,” added Stoltenberg. According to him, NATO provides Ukraine with "practical and political support" and believes that there can be no military solution to the conflict.
UPD: 01/26/2015 Putin: The Ukrainian Armed Forces are a foreign legion of NATO. VIDEO
According to Putin, the APU can not be called an army.
Reports Tsenzor.NET with reference to TASS.
"We often say: the Ukrainian army, the Ukrainian army. In fact, who is fighting there? There are indeed partly official units of the armed forces, but to a large extent these are so-called" voluntary nationalist battalions, "Putin said.
“This is no longer an army, this is a foreign legion, in this case, a foreign NATO legion, which, of course, does not pursue the goals of Ukraine’s national interests,” Putin said in a speech to students at Gorny University in St. Petersburg.
"There are completely different goals, and they are connected with the achievement of geopolitical goals of containing Russia, which absolutely does not coincide with the national interests of the Ukrainian people," he said.
UPD: 01/26/2015 Putin called the Russian invasion of Ukraine a civil war: Thousands of people have already died. VIDEO
Russian President Vladimir Putin said that official Kiev refuses to follow the path of peaceful settlement of the conflict in the Donbas and used a peaceful respite to regroup.
"Unfortunately, the official Kiev authorities refuse to follow the path of peaceful settlement, do not want to solve by political means. First, the law enforcement agencies used, then the security service, then the army," Putin said during a conversation with students of the National Mineral Resources University "Gorny" in St. Petersburg, reports TASS.
The head of state noted that when resistance was rendered, official Kiev ceased hostilities. "And they used, unfortunately, a peaceful respite solely for regrouping, and they began again. Thousands of people have already died. Of course, this is a real tragedy," said the president.
In Ukraine, he said, "tragic events, in fact, civil war" are taking place. “And in Ukraine, in my opinion, many already understand this perfectly,” said Putin.
