Danilov: Ukraine capable of regaining east of Ukraine by force, fighting for Crimea

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council, Oleksiy Danilov, says the Ukrainian Army is capable of liberating the occupied east of Ukraine by military means and go for hostilities to regain Crimea, while the Ukrainian government is not yet going to take such a step.


“Our Armed Forces are capable of purging the territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. We can fight for the territory of Crimea. But we must keep in mind that we can’t allow tens, hundreds of thousands of people dying in such military missions. That’s because we just have an understanding of where that limit is. But this doesn’t mean that we won’t do this if required,” Danilov said.
