“We are ready for any decision, even the most difficult ones,” he stressed, after already saying on Friday that “the most likely” is that the troops will withdraw to the left bank”.

kyiv has warned that it could be a trap because at the same time it observes how Russia is preparing for the battle for the only capital region in your hands.
