The absence of weapons “at a certain distance” around Ukraine will be required after the end of the full-scale war so that Russia cannot attack Ukraine again, a Ukrainian intelligence spokesperson said in an interview to Gazeta.ua newspaper on March 29.
Spokesman for Ukraine’s military intelligence directorate Andriy Yusov said the existence of a Russian state based on autocracy is not sustainable in the current format of the Russian Federation. Therefore, the federation’s disintegration is a “logical finale” and this “transformation is inevitable.”
After that, according to Yusov, the issue of Russia’s demilitarization will been the agenda for the sake of the security of Ukraine, Europe and the whole world.
“In particular, its denuclearization, as well as the issue of the creation of a certain security zone around the borders of Ukraine,” Yusov said.
When asked what will happen to Russia’s buffer zone, i.e. the regions bordering Ukraine, the intelligence representative said that the main task is to restore the borders of 1991.
Regarding security guarantees, Yusov said they would ensure that a large-scale attack would not happen again.
“This will involve the absence of weapons, forces and means at a certain distance around Ukraine,” he said.
“Ukraine will work on this.”
Earlier, Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief General Valerii Zaluzhnyi said that a victory for Ukraine means the creation of conditions where Russia will never be able to attack again in the future.
