Regardless of the threats voiced today by Russian President Vladimir Putin during the national Hot Line, the Ukrainian state will prevail, says Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov.

"No matter the threats by the Russian president, the Ukrainian state does and will exist!" Turchynov stressed.

The NSDC secretary noted that a "distressed Russian national" called Putin from the occupied Donbas, who is part of Russian-terrorist units (an odious writer-turned militant Zakhar Prilepin), voicing &q uot;concerns that the Ukrainian army might go on the offensive during the World Cup," while the Russian president said that such actions could lead to "grave consequences for the Ukrainian statehood as such."

The NSDC secretary stressed that the Ukrainian statehood is based on courage, patriotism and faith of millions of free Ukrainians who are able to "protect it and preserve freedom, democracy and independence for their children."

"This is a fundamental difference between our statehood and that of the Russian state, which can exist only in totalitarian conditions, when persecutors, gendarmes, security operatives and KGB agents squeeze them from sprawling with bars and barbed wire."

The Russian "statehood" lies on the bones of millions of tortured and innocent lives," he added.

"Regardless of the groans of distressed Russian mercenaries and the threats of the Russian president, the Ukrainian military will respond to any threats adequately, and the Ukrainian state does and will exist, regardless of the maniacal desires of the imperial revanchists," Turchynov summed up.

As UNIAN reported earlier, during a Hot Line on Thursday, Russian President Vladimir Putin vowed "grave consequences for the Ukrainian statehood as such" in case of any attempt to liberate Donbas.
