Russia Will Strengthen Western Borders To Prevent Attacks: Kremlin


Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov on Friday said Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered the military to strengthen the country’s western border so that no one would think of launching an attack.

Peskov told major television networks in neighboring Belarus that unnamed countries were strengthening their military potential near Russia’s western border. Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu is working on a security plan, he said.

“Of course this will be done in a way to keep us safe and make sure we reach the required level of parity so that it doesn’t cross anyone’s mind … to attack us,” he said.

Putin sent troops on Feb. 24 for what he called a “special military operation” to destroy the troops of Russia’s southwestern neighbor, Ukraine. Western countries call it a war of aggression without provocation.
