Danilov: Our task is to deprive Russia of the desire to attack its neighbors


According to Oleksiy Danilov, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will stop where the interests of Ukraine end.


Ukraine must deprive Russia of even the desire to attack its neighbors, especially as it happened with our state. And the Armed Forces of Ukraine, during their counteroffensive, will stop where the interests of the Ukrainian side end.

NSDC Secretary Oleksiy Danilov made such statements in an interview with the Voice of America.

“It will be a difficult, complex war. But this is our job, which we must do perfectly with our partners. To finish and finally end the issue of Russia’s influence on its immediate neighbors. So that the Russian Federation loses the desire to engage in such things and pokes its nose into Ukraine to tell us how we should live. As for timing. This is a difficult question. This is not a matter of a day or two, a week, or a month. This is a question that will take much more time, taking into account the fact that the Russian Federation is a large country. There are a huge number of colonized peoples which it used today in this war. When Russia finally gets rid of its colonies, which it seized in the 19th and 20th centuries, then we will see the real territory of Russia. It will all fly away. Another thing is that it will be tough. And here, the help of partners is decisive. And the faster it will arrive, the better the weapons will be, the better we will be able to deal with the enemy.”

“We must understand: if Russia remains in the form it is, it is only a matter of time before it can start another war. Therefore, our task is to make Russia such that she does not even have the desire to think that she can attack neighbors, especially in the way she did concerning our country,” Danilov said.

The Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council also spoke about how the end of the war should be. It will end only after the liberation of all Ukrainian territories temporarily occupied by Russia.

“The Armed Forces of Ukraine will stop where our interests end. And this will depend on many circumstances,” Danilov added.
