The peculiarity of the Russian-Ukrainian war is that within an hour it can turn into a full-scale conventional conflict involving land, naval and aviation components and special operations forces, Chief of the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Viktor Muzhenko has said.

"The peculiarity of the Russian-Ukrainian war is that within one hour (!) it can turn into a full-scale conventional conflict involving land, naval, aviation components and special operations forces," Muzhenko said in an interview with Ukraine's Fakty i Kommentarii newspaper.

According to him, the deployment of Russian troops (shock units formed by them along the Ukrainian border, including in Belarus and in the occupied Crimea), are organized in such a way that they can begin active military operations without special training.

"According to our calculations and NATO calculations, these units are 70% ready to fight. The only question is how much the environment in our country will allow Russians to act so. If chaos arises here, then it will be the most favorable time to start such actions," he said.
