A certain number of Russia’s armored vehicles on the border with Ukraine are displaying the colors of a UN peacekeeping force, said presidential spokesman Serhiy Pashynskyy at a press briefing Sunday, reports Ukrainska Pravda, May 11.
The head of the Presidential Administration responded to a question on Russia’s intentions to bring in so-called peacekeepers on the basis of the “referendums” in the Donbas.
Pashynskyy emphasized that peacekeepers can enter a country only on the basis of a decision by the UN Security Council, and that “all else is not peacekeepers but occupiers.”
“Indeed, on the territory of the Russian Federation there is a whole column of armored vehicles, painted in UN colors. The military units are still there,” Pashynskyy said.
“This is why we will consider any intrusion as military aggression and react to it as a military aggression,” Pashynskyy concluded.
