The information published at The Independent on Ukraine's "plans to deploy its troops in Syria” is false.
We support the position of our Western partners in the peaceful settlement in Middle East. However, there are no discussions on possible deployment of Ukrainian Armed Forces in Syria and Iraq. Our international partners have never requested such contribution from Ukraine, as they are fully aware of the fact that in the light of Russian aggression we need our army at home.
Dissemination of such messages may be regarded as a part of a hybrid war against Ukraine prior to the high-level negotiations on Syria.
