MOSCOW, April 10. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia conducts no military activity in the Ukrainian territory, Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Aleksander Lukashevich said on Thursday in connection with the “concern” of the Ukrainian authorities over Russia’s military activity “in the territory of Ukraine.”
“The Ukrainian side has sent through the OSCE Communications Network an invitation to the Netherlands to send its representatives to Kiev on April 10,” the diplomat said. “The purpose of the visit is to promote the ‘removal of concerns’ over the military activity of the Russian Federation in the zone of confidence building and security measures in the Ukrainian territory,” the diplomat said. “The Ukrainian invitation says, in particular, that the visit area would be specified after the arrival of the group of the Kingdom of the Netherlands to Kiev and may be expanded upon agreement of the sides,” Lukashevich continued.
“We would like to stress that Russia conducts no military activity in the Ukrainian territory,” the ministry spokesman said. “So, no matter how you expand the ‘visit area,’ it will be impossible to find any ‘signs’ of it there.” “This fact, in particular, has been confirmed by an inspection group comprising Danish, German, Polish, Austrian and Swedish representatives that worked in Ukraine in the period from March 20 to April 2 and visited the Kharkiv region, as well as the areas of Donetsk, Mariupol, Nikolayev and Odessa,” Lukashevich said.
