President Volodymyr Zelenskyy fears an escalation of the situation by the Russian Federation before October.

The President of Ukraine said this in an interview for Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

According to President Zelenskyy, in different periods, Russia brought 50,000-80,000 military to the border of Ukraine.

Besides, there were 30,000-35,000 military in the occupied territories of Donbas during the latest escalation.

The number included 3,000 Russian officers.

Besides, there were about 33,000-35,000 military in Russia-annexed Crimea.

When Europe and the United States started to cast pressure on Russia, about 3,500 militaries left Crimea.

The President considers that various military options can be expected from the Russian Federation, including naval operations.

The head of the state also fears closer ties between the Republic of Belarus and Russia.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, late in May, Ukraine banned air communication with Belarus and flights over its territory and for Belarusian planes over the own one.
