Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has said that a Russian invasion is unlikely, the 112 Ukraine TV channel reported, citing The Wall Street Journal.
"Mr. Zelensky still believes an invasion is unlikely, according to people familiar with his thinking, and worries that dire public warnings from the U.S. about a possible invasion are serving to amplify Russian efforts to destabilize Ukraine and its economy," the article reads.
WSJ journalists also contacted Ukrainian presidential spokesman Sergii Nykyforov on this issue, but he refused to comment on this information.
Defence Minister Oleksii Reznikov said that the possibility of a significant escalation on the part of Russia continues to be assessed as low.
At the same time, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said that the situation near the country's borders had not changed.
