You do it – you are already resisting Russian aggression. By remaining calm and prepared in this situation, you have already achieved a lot by doing this… Attempts to unilaterally reshape the European security system are unacceptable.

The Russian authorities have repeated many times that they have no aggressive intentions towards this sovereign state, despite the fact that they have already occupied part of it. The encirclement of Ukraine by military forces on a scale never seen before is seen solely as aggressive and threatening behaviour.
