Turchynov put the military task meter by meter move to the East
The Secretary of national security and defense of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov, who on 14 April 2014, being the acting President of Ukraine, signed a decree about the beginning of antiterrorist operation in the East of the country, States that would do everything the same way, knowing now about the results, he said in an interview with the BBC.
“I many times analyzed the situation, replaying the events in my head again and again, thinking what else can be done. I don’t know. I think I would have passed this way again. Because you can do a lot when you have the appropriate tools. When you have shelves, you can be a commander. And when you have nothing, and there is only a huge responsibility, then the options are not many,” said he, answering the question of whether he would act differently knowing the results of the decisions taken in the spring of 2014.
