Kiev is working to bring the situation in Donbass to a complete settlement through a peaceful settlement, the president said in a video posted on Telegram.
“Everything is under control. There is no reason to panic,” Zelensky said.
The Ukrainian authorities are ready for anything but hope for the best and are doing “absolutely everything” together with “partners, diplomats and the military”.
The president called on citizens to “be calm and not deny that everything is gone”.
At a briefing on the outcome of the meeting, Council Secretary Oleksiy Danilov also urged Ukrainians to remain calm, saying they did not see the possibility of a widespread Russian attack on Ukraine.
According to Danilov, the government records the movement of Russian troops on the territory of the Russian Federation, but he is not surprised.
According to the Minister of Defense Oleksiy Reznikov, at present the Russian armed forces have not formed a unified strike group, which would indicate that an invasion of Ukraine is planned.
Although risky scenarios are possible in the future, there is currently no such threat, the minister told ICTV on Monday.
For several weeks now, tensions over the concentration of Russian troops on Ukraine’s borders have subsided, raising concerns about another Russian invasion in Kiev and the West.
Russia denies allegations of an invasion of Ukraine by its troops. According to Russian President Vladimir Putin, Moscow is taking a defensive stance because of fears that Kiev is getting too close to NATO.
At a video summit on December 7, US President Joe Biden warned Putin that the United States would impose unprecedented sanctions on Russia if it attacked Ukraine.
