Ambassador: Russia may invade Ukraine from Crimea

Ambassador of Ukraine to Germany Andriy Melnyk believes that the Russian Federation can make an attempt of new invasion of Ukraine from the territory of the annexed Crimea.

"Russia deployed 40,000 soldiers and modern military equipment on the territory of Crimea after it had been annexed in 2014," the diplomat said.

He also noted that further Russian invasion of Ukrainian territory might occur not only from the east, but from the south as well, i.e. from the peninsula.

According to the Ambassador, the new bloody conflict will be "really fatal" not only for Ukraine, but for the whole of Europe.

Melnyk also called on the Federal Government of Germany to take a tougher stance on Russia with regard to the annexed Crimea.
