Russia calls Ukrainian invitation to foreign troops a provocation

Moscow, May 8 (Prensa Latina) The Russian Government described the appearance on the Ukrainian president's website of a message inviting foreign troops to Kiev as a dangerous provocation, Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Wednesday.

“We considered it an extremely defiant provocation, and we watched it carefully,” the presidential press secretary stressed.

He also said that the decision-making of the Ukrainian executive is unpredictable and a direct intervention on the ground in the conflict by NATO countries “potentially carries a huge risk.”

A piece of information was published on Tuesday with a request to each member country of the European Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States to send their troops to Ukraine.

Last week, French President Emmanuel Macron announced the possible deployment of troops to Ukraine, and British Foreign Secretary David Cameron described it as acceptable that the Ukrainian forces attack Russian territory with British missiles.
