Oleksiy Danilov: If russia tries to attack again from the territory of belarus, all our citizens will defend Ukraine together with the AFU
belarus is currently occupied by the russian federation, so the russian military can use the territory of this state as a springboard for an invasion of Ukraine. Secretary of the NSDC of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov stressed this on the air of the talk show "Great Lviv Speaks" on Thursday, October 20, 2022, adding that the threat of an attack on Ukraine from the territory of belarus "never disappeared, starting from February 24" of this year, when russia's full-scale invasion began.
At the same time, Mr. Danilov emphasized that Ukraine is ready for any developments. If the russian federation tries to attack us again from the territory of belarus, all our citizens will defend Ukraine together with the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
"This is not only about the Armed Forces. On February 24, everyone stood up...the entire population, our entire community will stand up for the defense of our country, and we will win for sure", - he said.
Mr. Danilov also stressed that "today, Ukraine is protecting not only itself but also NATO countries and democratic Europe from the fascist invasion of the 21st century", therefore, given current threats, "there must be a quick reaction and an active stance of our international partners".
