The advance of Russian troops in Crimea is stopped, Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC) Andriy Parubiy has said at a press briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday, March 4, according to Ukrinform.
"Thanks to the actions of the Ukrainian authorities, the Ukrainian military first and foremost, and also thanks to the unanimous position of the international community, which condemned the aggression against Ukraine, in fact, Russian troops have been stopped this night and Putin's statement proves that," Parubiy said.
According to the NSDC Secretary, when planning the intervention into Ukraine, the Russian leadership hoped that people in Ukraine will meet the Russian troops with flowers and Ukrainian military units will come over to the Russian side en masse.
"The plan for the rapid entry of Russian troops has failed. The Ukrainian military continue to draw duty, remain loyal to the oath, regional administrations in the east and south of the country continue to work," Parubiy noted.
