Russian aggression cannot be stopped by diplomatic means – Turchynov

Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov does not believe that Russian aggression could be stopped by diplomatic means.
He told this in an interview with LigaBusinessInform online news site.
“The only mechanism to make them implement the agreements, including those reached in Minsk, and to make them free the occupied territories is a strong army and a strong country. There is no other mechanism. I do not believe in diplomacy regarding Russia. I do not believe that they will go away, having lost courage because of the pressure of our allies. Only the strong Ukrainian army will make them get out of our territory,” Turchynov said.
He described Russian invasion as mean, as it happened in the most difficult time for Ukraine.
“Russia plays it low-down. Russia attacked us when we were weak as never before, in fact, there was no real government in the country. They attacked us when there was no efficient army and when there was a complete collapse in law enforcement structures. They hit us in the back,” the NSDC secretary said.
