Peskov warned in an interview that a fresh civil war might break out at any time in Ukraine, a neighboring country of Russia. For the time being, the possibility of use of force by Ukrainian leaders to solve domestic problems one again cannot be ruled out, which is definitely quite dangerous for Russia, according to him.
He noted that the conflict in the Donbass region has not been eased, with a very tense situation. The Russian administration has been voicing concerns that provocations may ignite the flames of a civil war and internal conflicts in Ukraine overnight.
Regarding Western medias’ concerns over Russia’s domestic deployment of troops, Peskov said that Russia’s deployment of troops within its territory should not raise other countries’ concerns. Russia poses no threat to any other county and will not go to war with Ukraine, he said.
Peskov pointed out that no one wants to go to war, and no one will accept any possibility of such a war. Russia has never been involved in the conflict in the Donbas region, but Russia will not be indifferent to the fate of Russians, or more precisely Russian-speaking people who live in in southeastern Ukraine.
