Russia will continue to experience the “demilitarization” of its own territory near the Ukrainian border, Adviser to the Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine, Mykhailo Podolyak, said on April 27.

“The current intensity of conflict will continue on Russia’s outskirts,” said Podolyak.

“Panic will grow and spread there, conflicts will flare up, warehouses and depots will continue to explode; all this will only intensify,” he said.

Podolyak added that Russia’s “demilitarization” will only ramp up in the coming weeks, especially in areas close to the Ukrainian border.

“Those fuel depots that will keep exploding will be Russia starting to make its war debt payments.”

Russia has in recent weeks suffered a series of explosions and fires at oil depots and military arms depots in its Belgorod and Bryansk oblasts, which neighbor Ukrainian territory.

Ukraine is widely thought to be responsible for the “accidents,” and is believed to have attacked them with helicopters and missiles, but Kyiv has not said it was behind the incidents so far.
