The military threat from the east will remain relevant in the short and the long-term even under the most optimistic scenario and the long-term truce in Donbas followed by political settlement and permanent peace.

President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said this during the graduation ceremony for operative-strategic and operative-tactical specialists at Ukraine's National Defense University on Wednesday, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"The early graduation of officers in the higher military education establishments of Ukraine has taken place for the second consecutive year. Reducing the terms of training and prompt graduation are caused by the fact that the military threat from the east will remain in both short-term and long-term even under the most optimistic scenario in Donbas followed by political settlement and permanent peace,” the President said.
