Ukraine is preparing for a full war with Russia

Summary of Disinformation

Ukraine is ready to repel “full-scale aggression” from Russia, and is preparing for full-scale war with Russia, according to the chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (APU) Victor Muzhenko.

Disproof

No evidence given. In a recent Radio Liberty interview Ukraine’s military chief of staff Viktor Muzhenko said Ukraine was training its military to defend the country. “We have worked out several possible threat scenarios concerning Ukraine and we are preparing our troops to defend our country. We must be ready, today, tomorrow, in a week, a year or three years, until the threat of military aggression against Ukraine is no longer there” Muzhenko said. He did not mention plans of a full scale war with Russia. Further debunking by Stopfake.org www.stopfake.org/en/fake-ukraine-readies-army-and-nationalists-for-war/.
