The Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing for all possible scenarios of developments in Donbas, the country's east.

Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Colonel-General Ruslan Khomchak announced this at a joint press conference with Defense Minister Andriy Taran, according to an UNIAN correspondent.

"I want to assure you that as part of a new J-structure [amid the transition to NATO standards], the General Staff is now working out all the plans, all scenarios for responding to the situation that could unfold," he said.

"All plans are evaluated, all plans are prepared, all plans are reported in due course to the country's leaders, the Ministry of Defense. As an offensive scenario, we last year began preparations at all our military units for offensive operations in urbanized areas, since we must be ready for this [option] too. Troops are being prepared for all possible scenarios," he added.

He also updated on the situation along the contact line between Ukrainian positions and those of the Russian occupying forces in Donbas.

"There is no such notion as a 'gray zone' in military terminology, there is an interposition zone. It is the area between the enemy's positions and ours. Today it is no secret, everyone knows that the an interposition zone along the 409-kilometer-long contact line is from 70 meters to one kilometer. Therefore, speaking of threats that today someone will occupy the interposition zone, [I can say] that not a single active operation is carried out without a purpose. What is the purpose of the fact that the enemy will reduce the interposition area from 1,000 to 700 meters? To be more vulnerable before our troops? There should a specific goal to launch any operation, and this goal is definitely not 200 meters within the interposition zone," he said.
