Behind Sunday’s events is an unofficial group called the Resistance Against Surrender. The organization organized anti-presidential protests on numerous occasions, and criticized the Ukrainian government’s stance on Russia’s offensive.
According to the “Republic of Korea”, Zelensky should not agree to grant special status to Donetsk and Lugansk. The resistance movement has also strongly opposed the restrictions related to the coronavirus.
Sunday’s protest coincided with a published interview by Kerio Budanov, head of the Main Intelligence Office of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, in the US edition of Military Times.
He warned against amassing Russian forces on the border with Ukraine, claiming that Russian aggression would be preceded by psychological operations aimed at destabilizing Ukraine and reducing its defensive capabilities. He added that such activities are already being monitored and include, for example, organizing anti-vaccine protests. According to him, part of these operations is also the situation on the Belarusian-Polish border.
The head of the Main Intelligence Bureau of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, Kiryu Budanov, in an interview with the US version of Military Times, confirmed that the Ukrainian data were consistent with those provided by US intelligence. According to Budanov, Russia is preparing for military aggression. This may happen in late January or early February.
