Il capo di stato maggiore ucraino Khomchak, ha dichiarato che il suo Paese «si sta preparando per l’offensiva nell’Ucraina orientale» prevedendo anche e «la partecipazione di alleati Nato» che tra l’altro sono impegnati nella maxi esercitazione Defender-Europe 21 che prevede un impegno massiccio dell’esercito statunitense.
