New EUCOM commander says no changes in Russia`s behavior in Donbas expected

The new chief of U.S. European Command and Supreme Allied Commander Europe, U.S. Army Gen. Curtis Scaparrotti says he does not expect changes in Russia`s behavior in the east of Ukraine and believes that the Kremlin will remain active in the region, according to an UNIAN correspondent reporting from a change of command ceremony in Mons, Belgium.
”From everything that I have seen, Russia has been very active in eastern Ukraine. I don`t see any indication that that`s going to change in a short term and I don`t expect it will,” said Scaparrotti, answering a question of an UNIAN correspondent.
Scaparrotti also noted that the Russians are ”active through many means – not just military, but information work to undermine the political fabric, etc, and I think that is very representative of the kinds of activity that they demonstrate in other areas as well.”
