At the time of signing the Russian side will do its utmost to destabilize Ukraine by creating an artificial crisis in the country.

In particular, the dissemination of discredit on Ukrainian politicians, according to the Kremlin, should lead to a breakdown in the signing of an agreement between the EU and Ukraine", - noted Paul Nuss.
