"Currently, absolutely no changes that would threaten the national security of Ukraine have been observed either on the part of Belarus or Moldova and the illegal Transnistrian republic. There is no build-up [of troops]. We, the military, assess the threats according to their appropriate degrees. So far, we have not identified any threats related to these areas,” Commander of the Joint Forces of Ukraine’s Armed Forces Serhiy Nayev said in an exclusive comment to Ukrinform, answering the question whether there have been any changes in the military presence on the borders with Transnistria and Belarus.
