MOSCOW (UrduPoint News / Sputnik - 08th April, 2021) Russia can defend the residents of the breakaway Donbas republics if need arises, Kremlin Deputy Chief of Staff Dmitry Kozak assured on Thursday.
If they stage [something like] Srebrenica [massacre] there, like our president says, I believe we will be forced to protect them," Kozak said at a press conference.
According to the Kremlin official, the "battle-hardened armed formations" in Donbas are capable of holding the line and do not currently need assistance.
"All depends on the opposite side," Kozak said.
