There is Russian aggression, not a civil war, in eastern Ukraine, Foreign Minister of Poland Witold Waszczykowski has said.

“What we see in the east is not a Ukrainian crisis and not a civil war, but Russian aggression against Ukraine,” Waszczykowski said at the 2016 Munich Security Conference, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

According to him, statements by Russia’s Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov at the conference indicate that Russia is trying “to create a new international order”.

Waszczykowski reminded about latest joint Russian-Belarusian exercises “West”, which included a simulated nuclear attack against Poland. Among examples of threats from the Russian Federation, he named the war in Georgia and Ukraine, as well as Moscow's participation in the war in Syria.
