Ukrainian army readying to deter Russian aggression - General Staff

KYIV. Oct 18 (Interfax) - Russia is preparing to wage an all-out military aggression against Ukraine, while the Ukrainian army is readying to deter it along the entire borderline, Ukrainian General Staff Deputy Chief Oleksiy Taran said.

"Respectively, the Ukrainian army is preparing to deter an armed aggression along the entire border of Ukraine, not just on the contact line but also in other regions, starting with the border with Belarus and farther on, in the area of Crimea and Bessarabia," Taran said in an interview with the media outlet Tyzhden.ua published on Thursday.

Russia's preparations for a military aggression against Ukraine "are quite obvious," he said.
