The United States, with statements about the preparation of 18 scenarios in the event of a Russian invasion of Ukraine, clogs the information space to whip up hysteria. This was stated by a member of the State Duma Committee on International Affairs Dmitry Belik.
According to the deputy, the statements of US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland are “baseless statements and provocations.” He added that the Russian Federation is not going to attack Ukraine, “no matter how much the United States wants it,” writes RT.
The parliamentarian added that this informational pressure is “repeated many times over.” However, “threats of sanctions will not be able to affect our country,” as the Russian Federation has already learned to “handle it well.”
Earlier on Saturday, US Deputy Secretary of State Victoria Nuland said that the US administration had prepared 18 various scenarios of action in case there is a “Russian invasion of Ukraine”. She declined to give details. At the same time, she noted that Washington and its allies are ready to respond to any aggressive move by Moscow.
