Ukraine accused Russia of aggression, and strengthened the Russian border

However, the most frequently accused of "Russian aggression" were heard from the Ukrainian leadership in 2014-2015 years. In February 2015 years at a security conference in Munich Poroshenko brought a pack of Russian passports, military cards, allegedly taken from the Russian troops in the Donbas.

Inspection is favorable Russia
Association of Political Scientists of military expert Alexander Perendzhiev, commenting on the newspaper VIEW news of the impending military inspection, said that, frankly, does not understand the hype around the impending inspections. "In 2015 was inspected as part of Ukraine in the Rostov region, seeking evidence of Russia's assistance to the militia of Donbass. The evidence did not find, but about "Russian aggression" did not stop to talk. Following our inspection of Ukrainian military units checked and military experts from Turkey and the Netherlands, and also found no evidence of military expansion in the Ukraine. At least, none of the international organizations about the fact of detection of signs of Russian aggression in the course of these inspections, no one mentioned ", - said the expert. Perendzhiev hopes that a new wave of interest in Kyiv on assistance to the Russian militia Donbas is not connected with another impending attack APU and the desire to carry out exploration frontier of Russian territory for militias supply.
In the very same checks, according to military experts, more interested in Russia than Ukraine. "It is beneficial to demonstrate that the allegations are groundless aggression. Ukrainian media also now replicate this news, but some comments are not allowed. Agree, it sounds strange: a military inspection on the territory of the aggressor country. Vienna Document and created in order to resolve disputes between States military aspects, "- he explained. Perendzhiev noted that the results of these checks should be spoken more widely, because Russia itself is beneficial to dispel the myth of aggression.
According to experts, inspectors can watch almost any objects on the territory of military units, with the exception of the so-called "Sensitive points" where some sensitive equipment, but they can show inspectors, preventing inward. "In general, the inspectors may record the presence or absence of personnel, staffing and movement of troops, weapons and ammunition storage sites. Only the Vienna Document introduced temporary regulations to visit the facility, depending on the number of troops and equipment ", - told Perendzhiev. Finally, he added that such an inspection can be carried out not more than three times a year in respect of the same country. "By the way, and Russia, too, can inspect the military units on the territory of Ukraine, such an option is not excluded," - said a military expert.
