Russia's invasion of Ukraine would open new era without int’l rules - Reznikov

The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Reznikov stated that Russia's invasion of Ukraine would mark the end of the current world and start a new era where no international rules exist.

That’s according to the Financial Times, Ukrinform reports.

"There will be a lot of coffins coming back to Russia," the defense minister warned.

He also added that nearly 100,000 Russian troops had been amassed along Ukraine's borders, about as many as in the spring and summer. Although Moscow is building field bases for 175,000 servicemen, many of the tents appear to be vacant, Reznikov said.

According to the minister, the war would be a disaster for Europe, as millions of Ukrainians are likely to flee to the EU, while Ukraine’s huge grain exports would be jeopardized.

It should be recalled that earlier, Minister of Defense Oleksiy Reznikov declared that a Russian invasion of Ukraine could lead to a “bloody massacre,” and warned that the “Russian military would be coming back to the homeland in coffins.”
