KIEV, February 21. /ITAR-TASS/. Ukraine’s Defence Ministry considers statements by former chief of General Staff and his deputy, Vladimir Zaman and Yuri Dumansky, wrong.
The top military officials were dismissed and stated they disagreed “the Ukrainian Armed Forces were engaged into a conflict”, the ministry’s press service reported.
“Their position is wrong, biased and does not help ensure peace in the country,” the report says, adding “They misinform servicemen and employees of the Ukrainian Armed Forces and the society as a whole.”
The ministry stresses that it did not issue any orders to break up rioters in Kiev. “The latest events in Ukraine prove that the clear position of the country’s armed forces to observe the Constitution and the existing legislation will ensure peace and stability in the society,” the ministry said.
